Bowtie Onesies and Onesie Dresses

I'm back in action!  Well....for a little while until I have to get a job!  Ha.  I'm now a registered nurse (passed my boards) so now I have to look for a job to start practicing what I learned in school!
So in the meantime, our little girl is turning 1 already in October so I'm getting ready for that.  I'm making it a pumpkin theme so more pictures and ideas coming for you.

Our new little nephew Henry was born yesterday so what better to give him than a bowtie onesie.  He can get all dressed up for those rides in the park or just hanging out at home.  :)

I bought a couple onesies at Walmart and just put a snap on the top (I also added a little round piece of felt to the back of the material so the snap wouldn't rip the onesie material).  Then I just made a bowtie using an idea from Pinterest.
I found a really cute cardigan sweater that will match this onesie perfectly.  :)

Now to my daughter Bella.  I wanted to make her a fall outfit for pictures we will be shooting tomorrow out in a pumpkin patch.  So here are two I made today.  They were actually pretty easy to make (I just know BASICS in sewing) so I'm pretty motivated to make more!
I got the idea from pinterest as well.  Just search onesie dresses and there are tons to choose from.  I bought a 4 pack of long sleeved onesies at Carters and then just sewed on 1/3 yard of material I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I used elastic on one of them and pleated the other.  The pleated one was much faster.  I sewed ribbon for the waist and made a hair bow too for each one.  Sorry for the horrible lighting (I finished them at night).

Here are a couple pictures of our cutie modeling the dresses.  
Happy Fall Ya'll!
