|I attempted to replicate these the first time...|
Undaunted I decided to draft a different style of pajamas with a top and bottom. I had purchased a cute giraffe receiving blanket from the "secret" Good Will that was just meant to be pajamas. (Have I mentioned how much I love giraffes lately?)
Well, I found a tutorial on danamadeit.com, but decided I didn't want to cut up a shirt to draft my pattern. I'll just trace it and fold it -- it'll be fine... RIGHT. Because these ideas always work out so well for me. Well, I traced and added a seam allowance, and a little bit of room to make sure it wasn't too small... Aaaand well... I ended up with pajamas that will fit her in about two years. Mark that down as a long-term "win", after all, they're adorable, but huge.

|Room to grow!|
I was now more determined than ever, and I still had some fabric left over (again from the secret Good Will -- this time a queen size jersey sheet I scored for about $4), so I tried again and sized down my pattern, compared it to a well-fitting shirt, adjusted, hemmed, hawed, and then took the plunge. Did I mention that the sheet was totally in BOY colors? Yep. Blue and gray with the white left over from the giraffe blanket... So, chalk that up to a "win" because my baby is adorable and can totally rock boy jams to bed, right?
