this ThreadBanger video on freehand embroidery by GirlPopcorn (she makes awesome stuff! although, I didn't follow all of her steps for the freehand emboroidery - I thought my own way seemed a little easier). I knew I had to try it but couldn't exactly decided on what to stitch until I saw these at Sublime Stitching. Once all things were in place (pattern, onesie, thread and time) it only took about 45 minutes from start to finish.
And I couldn't be happier with the result.
