  1. Each chapter is cuter than the last! Even though my kids are teenagers, I would love to start embellishing onesies again for my friends who have new grandchildren on the way! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and can't wait for the glitter!

  2. OOOOH How fun! I can machine embroider but have never tried hand embroidery! Never to late to learn!

  3. I've never seen that embroidery tool before although I have done lots of embroidery. I'd love to win any of these packages, they're all so fabulous!

    Haven't embroidered anything yet, but i did just get a bag of crafty hand me downs with some embroidery stuff in it- guess that means I better figure it out. :)

  5. I have not done a babysuit yet, but I love to embroider and I have about six baby gifts needing to be made.

    I have though made many a pillow case set as a gift for a loved one.

  7. I've not yet decorated a onesie but I've done some baby shoes & appliqued a fleece baby jacket in the past. I am in love with that elephant iron-on! Too cute.

  8. Oh yes I have done hand embroidering. I think it is relaxing!

  9. I've done a lot of hand embroider, never seen the tool before. The hardest project was a duplicate stitch flower on a sweater, but it looked cool when I was done.

  10. I embroidered waves onto a onesie for a friend of mine who worked at NOAA. :)

  11. I've done some embroidering in the past year, but mostly for practice. Though, I did use some stitches to make a few felt button brooches, I haven't actually stitched anything practical, yet . .

  12. I have not hand embroidered...but can't wait to try! :)Looks like fun & sooooo cute.

  13. I haven't altered a snapsuit, but I recently have been looking into embroidering, I would love to try it out!!!

  14. I haven't embroidered anything for quite a while, but in the past I have done a lot of different projects. My favorite one was a set of Communion clothes I did for my church a number of years ago. I had white linen and embroidered grapes, vines, and wheat on them with white floss. They turned out beautiful.

  15. I have altered a few baby snap suits via iron on transfers and fabric markers. Most of the iron on transfers were of original works of art made by my husband. I do the occasional embroidery on quilts and dolls.


  16. I have altered snapsuits, but not with embroidery. I have embroidery on the top of my list of things to learn. I need to get on that! :)

    I have never altered a snap suit, but I have been wanting to now that I have a 2 month old baby girl! Now I have the opportunity to alter some of my son's clothes that he has outgrown to suit my daughter! I have done a little bit of hand embroidery and I LOVE it! I letrally started a couple of weeks ago and so far I have embroidered 2 mustaches to hang on my son's wall, and a love note to my parner!

  19. That is a precious gift. I'd love to win so i can learn to embroider! My husbands grandmother has embroidered all her grand and great grands pillowcases and they are so sweet. I'd like to learn to embroider and give my grands (one day) a pillowcase with my own embroidery on it.


  20. i agree with do be do bead do... they keep getting better and better.. although the teasing is drivig me crazy... ready to win, or for the book to come out already... is it too early to camp out for a copy??? BTW... I HAVE altered a onsie..

    I love to embellish clothing and accessories. I also love teaching sewing and embellishing and altered art objects.

    I have friends with new babies and would love to make some snapsuits for them.

  22. I am currently working on an embroidery project. I haven't done any in years and I am enjoying it so much!


  23. Right before Christmas I taught myself how to embroider by checking out on line tutorials, I then embroidered a Tshirt and two onesies for my Step-father and his two brand new grandsons. They were all John Deere tractor inspired. They turned out really cute, even though they were my first real attempt at embroidery. Ur book looks like so much fun and I love ur site! Thanks

  24. I would love to learn to embroider! I have never altered a baby snapsuit (unless you count dying/ fabric painting) nor have I ever embroidered anything.

    I am really enjoying perusing your blog.


  25. I just started learning to hand embroidery. love your giveaway.

  26. I have altered 3 onsie snaps by using my cricut to cut out appliques, I then used my machine for a zig-zag stitch. I have also used iron ons to alter a onsie, using clip art.

    I just started to hand embroider, I am attempting to make wonderful felt hair clips. I have yet to post them.

    I stumbled across your blog with the search of creating patches by scanning and iron-on for a onsie.

  27. i have embroidered before, and one project i remember is making a "J" on one of my daughter's shirts. when that same daughter had a baby some years later, i used some gel-like paint to draw "angel" on her daughter's onesie.

  28. Lots of friends with babies on the way. This book will really be handy!

  29. It's been ages since I embroidered but I love what you have here. That "High Roller" shirt is a riot!! Thanks for a chance to win such an awesome package!

  30. yes, I have made some for my sister - so fun !!

  31. I haven't altered a baby snap suit but I have done embroidery. I made His & His towels as a housewarming gift for friends, used a punch needle embroidery piece to cover the logo of a free tote to make it cuter, and embroidered The Prince of Wails on a bib I sewed for my friend's baby.

  32. I am trying to figure out how I never came across your blog before....I am in L-O-V-E! HUGE congrats on your book...yipppeee!

    Let's see...I have altered a snap suit...into a fairy thing...using vintage handkerchiefs. I also embroider...but it has been a long time.

    I do however have a huge list of projects and emroidery would be a very chic touch!

    Great giveaway!

    I have decorated baby onsies with fabric paint and fabric markers before. I have only done limited embroidery, but would love to learn more... and my daughter would too! I also have a couple of sisters ready to give me nieces and or a nephew soon.

  34. I used to embroider when I was younger, but haven't done it in a long while! I've never altered a onsie, but I did alter a snap suit into a costume -Cleo, the fish, from Pinocchio - it was so cute!

  35. This would be super for my 16-year-old daughter who has been creating custom onsies for her bible study leader, teachers and other expectant mothers. My Caitlin got her ideas from blogs and just started raiding our stash of fabrics and floss, teaching herself the blanket stitch from online tutorials. I know this is a "chance" drawing, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed ....

  36. Hi Cathie!

    Ooooh, a giveaway...I LOVE giveaways!

    I have 5 (nearly 6) grandchildren and yes I HAVE altered a snapsuit. I also embroider, both by hand and I am the lucky owner of a wonderful embroidery machine.

    I sure hope I'm lucky enough to win this giveaway!

  37. I have done some embroidery. I would love to win! thanks!

  39. I would love to learn how to hand embroidery! I have altered t-shirts,but not snapsuits...So much FUN!!

  40. Just came across your blog and i'm already in love. I haven't altered any snapsuits but i have started refashioning some of my 2 year old daughters clothing. I have recently just bought some embroidery supplies because i really want to get into it! How perfect this giveaway would be! Thanks!

  41. not good at keeping up with blogging.
    The future wardrobe of my future grandchild depends on my winning this. PLEASE!

  42. This question isn't related to the contest, but to the book in general. When you say "one package of dye", what brand are you talking about? I have a TON of fiber reactive dye from Dharma, but it's just the dye. I did some snooping on Google and saw some message board where someone mentioned Dylon dye - and it has the soda ash etc.. in the package. Is that true and is this the dye you're referring to??? I have spent a small fortune on Dharma's dyes, I'd like to use these, but I don't have any of the extra stuff required (soda ash, mainly).


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
