I've had this pattern forever but was never satisfied with it before. I made a few modifications - and a bib with the baby's name (not the last name tho) which doubles as a card/moneyholder and thought it came out kind of cute. And everything (besides the eyes is usable for the baby!

Thanks for looking Smiley

Thanks audrey1999, frix220 and WYOKrista!
The pattern is probably 15 years old or older - I subscribed to a craft magazine just to get it! I combined that with another pattern I bought and made mine.

My next goal is to make the bib real so it can be worn by the baby.
Krista - if you make one I'd love to see it!!!

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

here is how mine turned out, I actually got all the "ingredients" from walgreens and put it together in my hotel room!!!
It was a huge hit at the shower, the mom to be said she does not want to take it apart.  I did not add eyes, I could not find any I liked, but I would have put baby sunglasses on it had I been able to find a pair. 
I also added mittens and booties since it will be a winter baby


in his head is a onsie and a onsie in his body too

thanks so much for the fun idea Kaleesi
