In support of a smaller footprint
I have done some thrifting from time to time.
I find myself a sucker for the velour tracksuits/
bathrobes of the 70's variety.
Well, a while ago I found a gorgeous blue bathrobe.
I clutched it dearly waiting for the right project.
For some strange reason I decided a sleep sack
would be the bathrobes end.
(For those of you holding more interesting facts in your head...
a 'sleepsack' is a sleeping bag a baby wears
so it keeps the covers on her shoulders all night long,
rather than stuffed up her breathing holes)
Now I had cunning plans for cuteness.
Ribbons for baby to play with.
Lace for me to look at.
This AND that.
But then in the chopping of said housecoat,
I came upon a pocket.
And somehow, it just seemed wrong to ignore it.
Surely a stuffed animal would hop in there.
I kept the belt loop too.
Perfect for hanging up the sack de sleep.
Yu has been in a wee one,
but she's growing.
So I thought I'd scale up.
Clearly I have a problem with scale.
These photos would be cuter with a cute baby in them.
Only she would be suffocated by her mother's
vague attempts at sleepification.
Good thing I plan on her growing.
