Baby Gift

My friend Jessica had her third child about a month ago and I knew I wanted to make her something rather than buying something.  I have an affinity for the handmade!

I had just bought Lil' Blue Boo's Little Leggings pattern and really wanted to try it out.  So, even though it's a pattern that starts at 6 months I cut it down a little and made some "pants" rather than leggings (ie, not as tight.)  I used some material I had picked up in the remnants bin to add ruffles to the legs and also to reverse applique the heart to the onesie.  The pants are actually made out of a tank top I picked up on clearance at Old Navy a while back.  (and they're brown, not black like they appear in the picture!) 

Hope you liked it Jess!!!  (and that it fit!  *fingers crossed*)
