Like probably everyone else, I've seen applique onesies all over the internet for awhile now. I joined the bandwagon and made some for my baby too.
I bought these fabrics as part of a fat quarter set, with no purpose in mind. I just really liked them and figured I'd find a use for them someday. Well, I did. Because the fabric is ocean-themed, and my in-laws run an aquarium business, I figured it was appropriate to do sea creatures.

One night I sat down and sketched them out on notebook paper while watching a movie, then cut them out and that was that. The fabric is attached with iron-on transfers, then I hand embroidered around the edges as a precaution since most of them have little skinny pieces that will probably start to peel up as they get washed over and over.
