Just wanted to share with someone who understands: tonight I made Benjy the cutest wool soaker out of a shrunken wool sweater vest.
I got the vest at a thrift store for $1.99.
I washed it on hot to felt it even more.
I used a pair of nylon pull-on pants as a pattern, and made the soaker in about an hour or less.
He's been wearing it all evening and I've changed several wet dipes, but the soaker isn't wet.
The vest was a heather gray lambswool from Old Navy, so he's looking very fashionable right now! :o)
I think I am going to make a bunch of these.
Thanks to Elissa for this Frugal Baby Tip!
