I used a combo and an internet tutorial to make these shorties from 2 different old felted sweaters, then attached hearts to cover some holes in the wool (goodwill sweaters- cheap but imperfect).  you can just google shorties from sweaters and find several tutorials, but basically you use the cuffs to make the legs.  cloth diapers ROCK!  and these cover and absorb Smiley

Are felted sweaters scratchy on little ones sensitive skin?  I ask because a little girl gave me a hug while I was wearing my wool coat and she said "Ouch, you're scratchy!"

I shuffle through the goodwill offerings for lambswool for the shorties/longies.  the lambswool stays nice and soft even with felting Smiley

Oh, well does the tag say "lambswool" or just "wool"?  If it just says "wool" do you just have to feel the sweater to see if it's scratchy or not?  Thanks for sharing your expertise!

it usually says, at least on the newer sweaters.  the ones i've gotten so far at any rate.. i think though if it feels soft or scratchy, that's pretty much the same way it will feel when you felt it.  felting makes it a little smoother, but lambswool is the way to go...
