Henry isn't sick and his teeth aren't bothering him anymore (his first 2 have poked through on the bottom) so he has actually let me do a little bit of sewing!
First, some jammies. I haven't had much luck finding cute jammies in the stores in 12mo size so I decided to make some. I love this fabric--it's a very soft cotton knit (from Joanns) with bulldozers and dump trucks on it. I used McCall's 3665 and made the largest size. I even put 3 red snaps on the top with my snap press--wheee!
Next, a pull-on diaper cover. I used an old gerber vinyl cover as a pattern. This is white PUL (polyurethane laminate, waterproof) which was embroidered by someone else for me. There is foldover elastic at the waist and leg openings. I think this is really cute and it's much better quality than that Gerber one. I haven't tried it on Henry though, so I'm not sure how it will fit.
Right now I'm working on another pair of pj pants and a pull-on fleece diaper cover.
Adorable!! The pj's, Henry, and the cover. I hadn't realized that was you posting your cover on the board. I waited so long for you to come and then I missed your posts!
Cute pj's! I like the diaper cover too...even if it's not my team. I broke down last night and purchased the MLB package. I was so frustrated at missing the games that were broadcast on Turner South, a regional station not available in my area.
Awww! The jammies are cute!! I want to make some now! Did you use a specific pattern that you'd recommend?Post a Comment
