some might think 4 is to old for a one piece sleeper- all the stores do, but my niece loves them for camping -she's outgrowing the one she's had for 2 years though (it was bought big), so with the leftovers from my sweater I made her this set - thought a hat would be good for camping on chillier nights or when it's windy.
The appliques where cut on my cricut with a regular blade.

I made my own non-slip bottoms, since I am low on funds and you can't buy the fabric here


I can't decide what to do by the ankles - she hates elastic, but they will be so baggy around her feet, any ideas?

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

Cuteness! What about running a ribbon around each ankle, similar to a drawstring bag? Then she can decide on the tightness/looseness of each ankle, and the right pattern on the ribbon would look really cute!

I don't think 4 years old is too old. I remember having some of these well into kindergarten, they didn't have no skid bottoms though which I think was the basis of their appeal. Anywho very cute!

When you cut fabric with your cricut do you mount your fabric to paper or anything?

target has had footed sleepers for every size up to adult for several years now.   they even had a pair that looked like they would fit my dh who is over 6 feet tall.  you have to look in the fall winter thought.

and i know carters has some that get rather large.   

but hand made are way more special, and cool

When I cut it on my cricut I ironed it onto wonder under and then just stuck it to the mat (Actually an old mat that I use glue stick on)

Unfortunately we only have wal-mart and zellers here, but my sil asked for a tinkerbell one, lol, I checked the fabric price but she'll have to wait, it's to expensive to have it shipped to me
