One of my favourite things about making baby clothes before a baby is born is feeling like you don't really have to pay attention to size too much. As long as it's not too tiny and the babe will get a decent amount of wear out of it, I'm happy.
Sometimes though that plan of attack can sort of backfire...like when I end making a "baby" sweater that is so big it'll fit a 2 year old. Oops.
But hey it's still adorable and someday this sweater will keep my little tyke warm and toasty.
