Here’s a January 2019 photo. Grandson Charlie visiting at my house. He’s wearing a fleece footed sleeper that was a cozy favorite. Doesn’t take long for kids to outgrow their clothes, though.
In December 2020 my daughter sent the kitty footed sleeper to me with a request- could I make something special from it?
So I made doll pajamas, with the sleeve cuffs being the pants ankle cuffs now.
After I sewed the pjs, there was a lot of the sleeper leftover but I couldn’t see anything in my mind to make from it. The scraps hung around for 3 weeks. Then I got an idea.
Yesterday I created Zippy the snake with the remainder. Stuffed a couple of knee socks with fiberfill and put them into the column I created to look like a snake. Now the snake can lose his skin with zero mess.
On to the post office tomorrow to get these mailed to Charlie. I’m hoping he likes the transformation.
