Pregnant or not, one of my favorite pastimes is endlessly browsing in fabric shops, which is exactly what I did a few days ago. After a while I found this really soft flannel, and then a fun, punchy pinky-red cotton to go with it. I decided to modify a jacket pattern I had already made to make this sleeper (I think they're also called bundlers?). At first I was going to put a zipper in, but then I thought Velcro might be easier for diaper changes and all that good stuff. I added some snappy-flaps on the bottom to make it shorter... I hear newborns are quite small.
