Since this summer will include a tiny baby and our family spends much time in the boat at the lake, I decided this little guy needed something nautical themed!
Ahoy, Matey!!The pattern I used is Sweet and Simple Bubbles and Bonnets by Old Fashioned Baby. The Nautical shadow work is my own and I hope to include them in a new Nautical Machine Shadow Work set that I am working on. I will have that set available soon on my website.
On the back of the bubble, I decided to add a shadow work anchor to the
"bum" and a sailboat to the back of the sweet boys cap!
Here's a close-up of the back of the cap with my Machine Shadow Work!
Close up of the machine shadow work anchor on the "bum"I made a change in the front button opening by folding the placket to the outside, rather than to the inside so that I could add the whipped piping to either edge of the front opening. I love this whipped piping - it was a perfect compliment to the whole nautical theme of the garment!
On either side of the little cap, there is a machine
shadow work anchor!
