evolution of the birds' eye

i had been making my vintage-print birdie onesies with button eyes.

and then i put on my hunter's vision -- or my naturalist's perspective-- and i found the hidden eyes in this vintage print. (can you spot them?)

when lined up just right, the flowers in the pattern make such great, subtle eyes -- so far better than the buttons (and it cuts out a step in production!)

the new, improved vintage-print birdie onesies (and newborn shirts)
(they'll be for sale this sunday at my table at the hearts and crafts affair at cafe grumpy in greenpoint, brooklyn!)

I love the way you used the pattern to create the eye! These are adorable. You're very talented!
