sweet baby kayla

Precious baby Kayla has been vacationing in the islands this week, and I wanted to have a new little onesie for her to wear on her return to cooler temperatures. The little duck came out nicely, but I wish I had used a darker pink for the lettering. Overall, though, it looks sweet. A onesie is one of my least favorite pieces to embroider. I used a soft beige cut away as a stabilizer, and added a second layer behind the first. I almost forgot the solvy on top, but was able to add it after I began stitching. Finally, I cut a small oval of Floriani Dreamweave and pressed it to the back of the design to be soft next to Kayla's tender skin. Hope I get a picture of her in it!
