rocket ship and birdie

Babies are popping up everywhere around here. But, many of those mamas are having boys. Each time I make something for a boy, I try it for a girl too. Some lucky friend having a girl will get more than their share from me because I have a few gifts stockpiled now. My neighbor had a baby boy last week, so hence the rocketship onesie and matching pants. I had a pattern (Simplicity 9380) for the pants that called for elastic on the bottom and I like them. But, when I made a set for a baby girl, I used this tutorial to eliminate the elastic cuff and make them more like mini lounge pants. I used a pillowcase I picked up a few weeks ago for a $1 and added grosgrain to the cuff. I wish this outfit was in my size.
