Lately, it has gotten colder here in Vegas. I pulled out the cold weather pj's to see what I've got to work with and I found these...
He wore a hole in these back when he first began crawling. I tried them on him and they fit in the body, but the legs are too short. So I figured it would be pretty easy to fix that.
I started by cutting off the foot of the pj's.
Then I used some ribbed knit to create a cuff around the leg.
I did that by cutting strips that were as long as the circumference of the leg, exactly. The knit will stretch so you don't need seam allowance. I got the instructions from no big dill. (click here for instructions)
One thing I messed up on is I cut the knit the wrong way. You want the knit lines to be running up and down so it stretches side to side, make sense? I hope so. I'm sure it's common sense, but I really don't know where my brain was at, it was late. I was able to make it work though and they turned out perfect.
He would not stand still or relinquish the diaper changing supplies for a picture. Silly boy.
