Sleepsuit Dinosaur

I absolutely loved Mia in this sleep suit when she was little. Shehas long since outgrown it, and all of the other clothes the same size are packed away for the future. But I couldn't just pack this one away. I kept it and another one out and planned to make a toy for her.

An today I finally got round to doing it! My favourite sleep suit on one side,

And a matching one on the other, plus a few ribbons from my stash!

And Mia seems to love it - it's the perfect size for little hands.

You can find the pattern here.

Hi - I have just found your lovely little dino pattern and the cute one you made for your baby. I have been looking for easy but charming and cuddly toys to make for charity and I hope you don't mind if I use your dino. I will be sending toys to babies and children in Kenya in November and I thought you would like to know. I have 5 grandchildren and Beckett is just 2 months old and I will make one for him too. I love the idea of using those beloved sleep suits and onesies,

What a cool idea! I never thought to do this. I've gotten rid if all the baby clothes now, but kept the special sentimental suits.
