What to do with old fleecy baby blankets (eight years on)? Make them into snuggly big boy PJs...

These are based on New Look pattern 6131, but with a few modifications: I've rounded the neck-line; lengthened the top and sleeves; added white panels to the sleeves to create the stripes; and narrowed the trouser legs and waist for my tall skinny boy!

The stripy sleeves are my favourite part - they tie together the colours of the top and trousers, and remind me of the scene in Shark Tale where the vegetarian shark disguises himself as a dolphin. (Can anyone else see that? or is it just me?)

I have not see Shark Tale, sorry, but I like the look of the stripe. It definitely make the PJ more interesting.
Nice job. :-) asel.
