First Day of Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring and it is time to begin thinking of Easter baskets and bunnies! This classic little boy's outfit can be made from pattern #113 Toddler Romper or #133 Baby Romper, and is a style that I enjoyed making for my own boys when they were small. For the fabric I chose yellow pique and white imperial batiste to give it a fresh spring look. The Easter basket and bunny designs are included in pattern #113 and in the Heirloom Embroidery Book, along with the Shadow Embroidery instructions. If you have not tried shadow embroidery, it is a fun and easy stitch and is perfect when you need a soft look. After the collar was completed I attached the white rickrack to the edge using yellow embroidery floss and a whip stitch. Rickrack has become extremely popular again and is a great edging for the boy garments. Can't you just see this outfit on your little guy on Easter morning?
