Who Lives In A Pineapple Under the Sea?

The old funky cut-off jammies are dead!

Long live the mommy-made BobBob jammies!


Hee hee!

Super simple to make. I just traced a pair of pants he had that still fit him folded in half onto some newspaper. Sewed the two legs together, sewed the front to the back, added elastic and hemmed the pant cuffs.


He really digs them. The tops are actually some t-shirts I found on clearance at the grocery store of all places. We went grocery shopping on Thursday before the "hurricane" hit and while it wasn't day-before-Thanksgiving-crazy-busy, I found myself sitting in front of a display of these clearance items while I was waiting in line for 30 minutes.

I just appliqued some stars I cut out of the leftover fabric onto the t-shirts.


There's a story behind those stars too. I cut them out using the paper star that Chunky got from a Betsy Ross impersonator at the Betsy Ross house in Philadelphia. Very cool. I never realized that Betsy convinced George Washington that the five point star was the way to go instead of a six point star that he originally wanted for the US flag.

Regardless--the five point star makes for good jammies!

Love the wide legged stance :0) And he's all shiny from the shower too - the cuteness!! The jammies, as always, are inspired - nice job on the bob-bob!

I love it! The idea of appliqueing onto a cheap plain t-shirt is genius :)

They're adorable and good for now into the fall. Put a long sleeved t on him and they're good for winter, except he'll probably sprout up in the meantime.
