One of my sewing goals for the year is to finish up projects. Frequently I will start projects, and then they'll just sit around waiting to be finished up. I actually have an entire drawer of a dresser that is dedicated to projects in progress.
These little leggings had been in there for over a year. The only thing that I had left to do was add the elastic. I sat down, added the elastic, and decided that they needed a little something extra.
How about a bumper sticker? This one came in the shape of a polka dotted heart. Have I ever mentioned that I love polka dots? Well I do.
I grabbed a scrap piece of red knit, and an orange fabric marker.
I added some simple polka dots to one scrap....
....and some stripes to another. Paired with some fusible adhesive, they made a cute little applique for these baby leggings.
I also added a bow to the front...just for fun.
