Friday Fun! Toddler Sewing

I'm sorta timid about clothes making... but I don't really count these fleece shorties as clothes.

They're actually meant to be a breathable cloth diaper cover!
At home we use prefold cloth diapers and its nice to put a breathable cover on Eli every now and again... so his tooshie can get some airflow.

I want to make these in the LONGIES version (as in long pants) in a jersey fabric.  Just to wear as 
comfy everyday pants.  I wonder if I could adapt them to my size...

The pattern is from Apple Dumpling Gear on Etsy.  SO easy to sew, as it only took about 5 minutes to cut out the pattern, then another 15 minutes to sew them together.

He's blending into the grass pretty well!  

Stand still for goodness sakes!  Good, thank you!

 "Look mom, a truck!  I love me a truck driving by!"

I love to see Eli wear the things I make... maybe I should delve into clothes making more often.

They do look cozy! I say take a whack at making them your size, then you can share the pattern with us! Eli is adorable and growing up too fast.

What a cutie! Honestly, he could probably model terribly sewn pants and they would still be cute. Please do sew more clothes... I want to as well but need some motivation!
