    Fun baby shower gifts

    I've been making some onesies out of thrifted tee shirts. They are so much fun to make! The pattern is a Peekaboo Pattern.

    So very cute. There are lots of you tube videos taking adult t-shirts and making leggings for kids. You use the hem line as the bottom of the pants so that you don't have to hem them. I have lots of t-shirts I don't use and something like this would be great. I have two 5 mo twin grandsons, even though the started out extremely small 3+ pounds they are already over 12 pounds so clothes are always being needed.

    I bet you could sell those for some serious money...

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thanks for the nice comments. This is a super easy PDF pattern from Peekaboo Pattern Company. I'm a big fan of these patterns. The sizing is good and always turn out great! I'm thinking of selling some, and keep collecting cool tee shirts.
