It’s amazing how each of my children have grown into their names, along with their many permutations and nicknames. Adeline quickly turned into “Addy,” which became a springboard for “Fussy Addy,” “Silly Addy,” “Grabby Addy,” “Saddy Addy,” basically rhyming it with everything (adding a “Y” if necessary). She has definitely found her niche within our family; I can’t imagine life without her.
Back before she was born I upcycled some wool sweaters into newborn soakers and a pair of longies. She got a lot of use out of those, and while the soakers are now too small, she can still wear the longies. I had a bunch of the grey sweater material left over and felted it a bit more in a hot wash so it would be thicker and more leak-proof. Then I cut and pinned some pattern pieces… which sat for a while.
Finally, after crossing some other projects off my list, I sewed the longies. I even added hearts to the lower leg and smack dab in the middle of her bum – so cute!
These are super-easy to make and would be cute in any material for a simple pair of baby pants. Oh, the possibilites…
