Look Who's Coming! Baby Shower Gift

Finally! I tracked down a picture of the baby shower gift I made and sent off on Saturday! I knew someone would have taken a photo, and good ol facebook pulled through!
The theme of the party was birds, and the invitation read "Look Whooo's Coming" with owls on it, so since I LOVE owls, this was my inspiration!
I wish you could see the skirt better, hopefully I'll find another photo, and when I do, a tutorial will be coming... or maybe I'll make another one just for that purpose (and Marley's wardrobe :) )
The Owl is appliqued on the onesie, using my own owl pattern. I stitched the wings on with a zigzag stitch, and then did a straight stitch around the edge prior to applying the strong Heat and Bond (which you Can't sew through). The eyes were attached using Heat and Bond as well. This way there is no stitching touching the baby skin, especially since I made this for 0-3 months.
The skirt is my own creation with a fun double-layered tulle ruffle at the bottom. (these will be in my shop soon!)
Throw in  pair of Baby Legs, and you have an outfit!
