The first is this blue pair made from a polo type shirt.
Cut off sleeves
My kind of pattern -- use a pair of something you already have!
A few runs through the sewing machine.
Avi modeling them while helping me hang the laundry.
There is even room in there for his gigantic cloth diaper.
I had to include this one of his t-shirt from Tiny Revolution... can you read it?
"Double the Mommies, Double the Love."
The second pair were made from a 3/4 length sleeve knit sweater that I wore a ton while I was pregnant. It was an XL and too big for me postpartum.
These are great pj pants
Built in stretch.
How Avi has grown in just 3 months, these now fit like capris on him.
The third pair were made from a wool sweater that I felted. I think Diane has a nice explanation on how to felt sweaters on her blog.
Green Wool Snow Pants
Yesterday, Avi wore them in the snow and I am LOVING them. We have a snowsuit from last year that is too small if he wants to walk or lift his arms and we haven't gotten him any snow pants yet for this year. So in the meantime, with these frigid days, on went the wool pants as snow pants. They went easily over his cubby legs, a pair of babylegs leg warmers, and some loose cotton pants and kept him warm and DRY!!
Even a tumble is no problem.
Snow caked outside, dry and warm inside.
Everyone should be able to sit in the snow and be so warm.
Our afternoon exploration in 27 degree temps was a success!
Special thanks to my sweetest model.
