Last year I bought Steven a really nice wool turtleneck to wear for our family Christmas pictures. Well, I washed it (after the photo shoot) by accident. So I decided to try my hand at making a soaker. Linus is a heavy night wetter, and I often have to change the sheets in the morning and air the bed out. I managed to get a pair of longies and a short soaker out of it, and all without a pattern. I was pretty happy with the results regarding how they look, and very happy about having a dry bed!!! Boy did I get my $20 worth from that Target sweater. Hmmm.....off to the thrift store to buy mens sweaters.
