embroidered baby onesies

I have been busy getting things ready for the new baby.
He will be here in just 2 short weeks!

Having all boys, you would think we would have all the clothes we need already.
For the most part, that's true, but there is also the fact that Owen was a spitter.
Although washed and spot cleaned several times, most of our 0-3 baby clothes have the dreaded yellow stains all over them.
I have tried every thing and can't get them out (any suggestions?).
So, I decided to work on some new onesies for the new guy.

I used plain white onesies (some from Old Navy, some just Gerber), and embroidered some really fun images on them.
I used interfacing on the inside of the onesie both before and after I embroidered the image to make sure the texture of the thread didn't irritate the baby's skin.
I love how they turned out and am already scheming up a few more ideas!
