Fabricville had one of those crazy sales a while back so I picked up a McCall's 9407 and M5963 for $4 each!  Not having sewn from a pattern since hugh school home-ec class, my mom was a big help.  Especially when it came to the zippers.  I fear zippers no longer!!

First up, and first stitched, M5963 Hoodless Bunting.

Its fleece lined with jersey.  And has those flip down mittens on the sleeves.  Not that the little man needs them anymore, but more for the exercises of making them, seeing has neither of us had ever done something like this before.


A detail of the neck.  We opted for the large so that my little giant would get maximum use out of it.  It was really late when we finished and both broke out in to side stitched laughter when we saw the size of the finished neck.  As you can see, he can fit through that opening without putting down the zipper!

 

Next, 9407 in jersey, no lining.

This one has a drawstring style closure at the bottom which I think I'm either going to sew shut or make a snap closure.  The little man has discovered his toes and I don't want him eating the drawstring.

how wonderful! And these are the safest thing for babies to sleep in, as opposed to blankets. I've got a nephew the way soon & I've been wracking my brain what to make for him since my bro & SIL don't do blankets (so no sense making a quilt).

How cute!  It reminds me of when my 2 were little and sleeping in the little zip-up sleep sacks!  At the time, I just traced out my pattern from ones we had purchased (they were sleeveless - no way I can improvised sleeves!).  Yours are absolutely adorable!  And your little man is way cute, too!

Thanks all for all the positive comments !!

I'm probably going to make a couple of sleeveless ones for the warmer weather out of jersey.  Which will probably be the same patterns just without the sleeves =)

If you're going to use something like this as a sleep-sac, I've been warned against having a hood.  There's a chance, as with a blanket or bumpers, that they might smother themselves with it.

Yay for snuggling sleepsacks.  I definitely will be needing a few of these for baby coming in October!
