Katherine thanks! Actually I am thinking of making a few more of these for my brother's baby.

(And five years later, I still think it's)--awwww! To keep the little one from becoming Chilly Willy (the Penguin). Simply adorable, Deepika.

sewnewtosewing, since I dont have any babies yet, I can't give you any recommendations but based on other reviews of the same pattern here, I thought this medium weight fleece would be ok. To tell you the truth, I just fell in love with the fabric :-) But seriously if you are thinking about making it, just do it. Its so cute and your friends will love it!

Oh so awesome, love it. I am thinking about making this for a couple friends who are expecting in Dec. too. What weight is the embroidered fleece you used? What weight would you recommend?

Hilary, it's actually for my soon to be born nephew. My cousin is having a baby in December. I wasnt sure if the shower is for the mom or the baby to be born, I do now :)

Sweet fabric. I'm sure your cousin just loves it.

How CUTE! I love that fabric :o) I need to make some of these too-thanks for the tips, and congratulations to you on your new baby cousin (2nd cousin I think, right? lol) Just in case anyone's wondering the tab is for keeping the zipper pull from flipping up and digging into baby's neck (I have skipped it and found there were red marks all over ds's neck :o() They are a great addition, and make the garment much more comfy for baby.

Great job! The fabric couldn't be cuter--no reason to spend any more time than you did picking it out. Your experience matches mine with this pattern, from sewing details to the response of the shower guests! Yes, it's easier the second time, but I was too lazy to add the tab, which is a nice touch.

I too loved these when my son was little, but we didn't have any nearly this cute! Great job.

Wonderful job and thanks for the review. I have a few friends expecting, guess I need to add this to the list.

I made a couple of these for the birth of my dgd last year. My dd and I have had a discussion as to whether the tab is really necessary, since they didn't have those on clothes when my kids were little, but my daughter insisted that it was for the best :)). Very cute!

Hi Katharine, I'd say with cutting and everything it took me 2 hours. But I bet I can make it much quicker the next time.

Adorable! How long did it take you to do?
