Talking Made My First Shorties

I made my first pair of recycled wool shorties!

I'm so excited - it was a short-sleeved sweater and I created my own bizarre pattern. I sliced the bottom off a few inches below the sleeves, then cut a triangle out of the front and back with the point of the triangle up at the neckband (which became the new waistband). It worked out great, and has a double layer of thickness in the diaper area so it should work for naps or even nighttime...

Check it out!
