One of my favorite sections of Etsy to browse is the section labeled "Geekery". It's not that I am necessarily drawn to anything from the section, but I love to see what others add.
I recently attended a baby shower for my cousin's wife and baby. My cousin just graduated from college with a degree in mathematics. I thought that it would be a bit fun to make a onesie that was just for dad. Who knows if Mama will actually let the little girl sport the onesie, but I had fun coming up with the onesie, and finding my own little spot in the world of Geekery.
The ones itself is freezer paper stenciled. If you happen to have a math geek in your family, and want to make a similar onesie, just email me, and I'll send you the file. Obviously the reference to mathematics comes from the Pi symbol. I had originally planned on stenciling on "Daddy's Sweetie Pi", but I thought I'd make it as simple as possible.
I wanted to make a skirt to go along with the onesie. I came up with this little number. It has actual pockets with piping around the edges, and several buttons set inside. I used the same white pom pom trim that I used on this shirred sundress.
One of the things that I really like about the skirt is the fact that the front is flat, and the elastic gathers the skirt between the pockets.
I can't wait to try out this skirt again. I still have some gray corduroy left, so I may do a gray and yellow version a bit later. Anyone interested in a tutorial?
Thanks for reading. I'll be sharing a few other simple baby shower gifts a little later.
