Peek-A-Boo Hangout Hoodie Turned Onesie {Flip This Pattern}

A while ago (over a year ago) I discovered the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop and loved what I saw but never bought anything. "Why?" you ask? I don't know.

I love her patterns. 

Now I own only 5. I say only because I want more and it is a miracle that I haven't purchased them all! How can you go wrong? They are wonderful! And range from 3-6mos to about a size 10-12, on average! So much better than the big company's patterns...

One of the patterns that I have I finally made. The Hangout Hoodie.

I wanted to make it for Samara, but shirts just ride up while holding her. So instead I wanted to do a onesie.

But before I started that I needed to try it regularly first. And both were re-purposed old shirts of mine! I love re-purposing! Enter little man...

I loved how it turned out. And not having a serger I think I did pretty darn well.

So then, enter the Onesie attempt. Not bad if I do say so myself... Brandon said it looked store bought! Awesome!

It is a bit big, but then I made it to fit Samara to the end of the winter! She is currently in a size 0-3 months, though quickly outgrowing that size. I made this one about a 6 month size. And she has a big butt when sporting the cloth diapers! :)

I have since added extra snaps to the bottom so it closes better. And I think my little girl looks just adorable in the hoodie!

I just used a current onesie I had and traced down the shirt 6 month size to the bottom. I also trimmed about a 1/4" on both sides of the front and back (1" all the way around) because my kiddos are so skinny! It makes it more fitted that way (the way most onesies are).

Who can resist those adorable blue eyes?

I think I need to make a pair of matching leggings! I feel so proud!

Yup, definitely need to make her a pair of leggings to make it an outfit! 

And the pattern works for both boys and girls? Score!

So... Click here to visit Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. and see what you like. Every Thursday she has an item usually about half off. And she has discounts for 3/5 items too! How awesome is that? And on the 18th she is doing a sew along for the Classic Footed Pajamas! What perfect timing for the cold nights, and the holidays! Christmas Fleece anyone?
