What's up, Home Squirrel?

Y'know how your family or friends have their own special language and shorthand? They do, I tell ya! Well, amongst my and sister's female friends, we used to call each other "home squirrels" instead of "home girls" so when baby sister Rikki Tikki Tavi's friend had a baby last week, I opted for a home squirrel embroidered onesie.

The orange knit fabric is cut from an old t-shirt of mine. Sulky transfer pen used for tracing image and ironed on to fabric.

Left squirrel - split stitch. Right squirrel - backstitch.

Both with (securely stitched) bead-y eyes.
