Onesie Makeover

A couple weeks ago, before my hands started to bother me, I spent the weekend decorating a plain pack of onesies into something special for the baby.  Truth be told, I only got to 2/3 of the package before the weekend was over, so there's still one that needs to be spruced up. 

I started with a butterfly (of course, since I am CONVINCED that the baby loves butterflies).  I found a picture of a butterfly I liked online, copied it into Word and then printed it out when it was the size I wanted.  Once that was done I cut out all the pieces and then transferred them onto material. 
I was feeling particularly lazy that weekend and didn't feel like getting my sewing machine out, so I went the no sew route.  I went over the edges of the material with some fray check and then glued them on the onesie with liquid stitches.  Once that was all done I "embroidered" the edges with embroidery floss. 

On the second onsie I made an "Irish" design, since she will be a very Irish baby (hopefully with blazing red hair like her Daddy).

 I'm really happy with how they came out.  What do you think?
