Moo Cow Onsie

July 8th is Cow Appreciation Day at our favorite fast food restaurant...Chick-fil-a! If you have never eaten at Chick-fil-a it is absolutely THE BEST! Today, if you dressed up like a cow, each person received a complete free meal! We invited a bunch of friends and had a blast! While I took the easy way out with my costume and my husband's, I had to create something really fun and unique for Cai's first Cow Day!

Introducing the Moo Cow Onsie:

To make this onsie, you will need:
1 plain white onsie
black embroidery thread & stabilizing material
pink material for the udder (in this case a wash cloth)
black minky dot fabric

I went ahead and did the embroidery on my onsie first, while it was embroidering the "MOO" in Westway font in Pacesetter, I cut out 4 different patches of the black minky dot and a circle out of the wash cloth material. Pin all your dots on your onsie. After done embroidering, sew around each fabric patch, then go back around each patch with a zig zag stich. Throw the onsie in the dryer to get all the lint and fuzz off and you are good to go!

Isn't it so cute!?
