Over a month ago I made this pair of wool longies and slippers for my little guy. A good friend had found a wool sweater during one of her thrift store shopping excursions and gave it to me. I used the sleeves to make the pants and the bottom of the sweater to make a waistband. I think I would make the waist smaller next time, but the pants work just fine over cloth diapers. I used this tutorial for reference. I was pleased that I was able to get the stripes to match up on the pant legs. Below is a picture of Joseph wearing the pants. He is seriously contemplating whether he should pull out an onion from the bin again or if he should not. “Maybe the onion wasn’t as tasty as I thought the first time I tried it,” contemplates Joseph.
I also made a pair of slippers out of part of the sweater using this tutorial. I think that I will add a little width to the pattern if I use it again because my little boy’s feet are on the wide side. The sole is two layers because I used non-skid fabric for the bottom.
