Hooded Sleep Sack for Baby

Today I finished the hooded sleep sack I've been working on for Valerie's baby.

This is the first time I've sewn fabric to a knitted piece. It was a little tricky, but I managed. Some parts, like the sleeves, had to be hand sewn because I didn't want to contort myself too much to make them fit in the machine.

It's a little hard to tell in the pictures, but there's a zipper that closes up the front.

And since I don't have a baby to model this on, and I didn't think the cats would sit still long enough for a picture, I decided to let Joe's monkey try it on.

I think it needs a cute patch for the front. What do you think?


  1. AH! That turned out so well! And seriously cute. :) I'd vote for a patch in the front. Well done! :)

  2. I love it and Mike is sitting here saying "it's so cute, I can't wait to see it in person" I love it too B! Shoot at the rate your going baby, we aren't going to have to buy clothes and stuff. You are so sweet and our little one is going to love it's "Aunt B". You are so wonderful, we are so excited to see you again! I miss you B.
