Embroidery Fun - Tana Tutu Dress

I've been sewing and embroidering alot this weekend. It's been fun. Here are some of the items I've done.

How I Roll was a free design from Embroidery Garden. I thought it was adorable.

This onesie is for a friend who just had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago. When I told her about the design, she gave me the onesie to try it.

I bought some tshirts and onesies to practice on and made a couple for gifts. This one is for someone who is expecting a girl.

This one is for another expectant mother that doesn't know if the baby is a boy or girl.
The design takes about 13 minutes to do and fits in a 4 X 4 hoop. I experimented with different color combinations to match the fabric.
I am changing the Tana Tutu pattern a little. Instead of the tulle on a bolt, I am using the tulle on the 6" rolls. I find it is easier to work with. Since I was making another dress, I decided to add some embroidery on the front. This design is part of a set called "Ballet Cuties" from BunnyCup Embroidery designs. I changed the colors on this one also to match the fabric .
