DIY Baby's Sleep Sack (Sewing Tutorial)

When our little guy outgrew his 0-9 mo sleep sack at age 6 mo, I came up with this pattern for a new one that will be plenty long for his growing little legs. 

One of my readers, Sarah S, used my tutorial to make a sleep sack for her son. She wrote me back, glad for the  "super easy sleep sack pattern". She's a beginning seamstress and thought it was very easy to make. Here's hers, modeled by her sweet little Sammy:
Thanks for sharing Sarah!

Fleece Hat with Ear Flaps - Tutorial and Printable Pattern!

This is one of my favorite sewing projects... it's cute, warm, practical, and so so versatile. I have a downloadable pattern available to print for babies to adults!

Above I added little pom poms but you can add simple animal eyes or ears, or any number of variations to make each hat unique and fun. I used this same pattern when making the hat for my son's frog Halloween costume...
