Anyway,.. After searching for ideas for Mr. E., I found this tutorial and got really excited. My husband has tubs of t-shirts still sitting in his parents' closet at home from all of the activities he did in school. Way more than he will ever wear. Couple that with a little guy who is growing faster than I can afford to keep up with, and this tutorial looked perfect.
I sewed the whole thing by hand, as I prefer to do so when I make something small for the first time. And, again, another success! I will be adapting it slightly, as the legs are a little short for "Mr. Longshanks", and I think I might try velcro for the closure instead of buttons next time, Thankfully, the pattern looks easy to adapt. But, here it is!
