Hi,  I made this outfit from some corduroy jeans my 20 year old daughter outgrew and an old flannel shirt I outgrew. 


It doesn't look like corduroy, but the fabric is black so it's hard to tell.




I found this baby shoe pattern and instructions on some blog.  They were so incredibly easy to make.  I think I found some pictures here on craftster and followed the trail to the blog that had the pattern and instructions.  Unfortunately, I can't remember where the blog is now.  They came out so cute.  Just thought I'd show them.

Yes, it is and your right it is hard to tell.  I got the pattern from WM and lengthened it to make pants since my new grandson will be wearing this in the winter.  It didn't have a zippered front, I did that.  Makes it easier to put on and off.  I also added snap-tape for the legs for changing the diapers.  I also made a diaper tute from taking a disposable diaper apart and making a pattern.  It came out really nice and when I posted the first one (before the tute) I got some really good advice on how to improve it.  I call it an Eco-Friendly diaper,  the first post of my diaper was called Environmentally friendly diaper.  So I've been having fun making things for my new grandson and have enjoyed (for the most part) posting.  There has been this one person who's posted really negative remarks, that's what I mean "bor the most part".  I think I am just too thin skinned, though.

Thank you.  I couldn't decide where to put this post either.  Here in the clothing or in the recon/recyle one.
