Last week I went to my parents home for the annual pioneer celebration that our town puts on. We were there for the parade, a barbecue, and a rodeo. On Monday I had my uncle look in to some problems on our car. There were a couple issues that needed parts, and it couldn't be finished until Thursday. So, the kids and I made our selves at home at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We had a great time playing in the water, sewing, and eating all of the yummy food. However my little Rogue learned a new trick that was not so great. It is called the laydownforanapandtakeyourdiaperoffandsmearyourfecalmatteronthewalls trick!
It is a foul smelling dirty trick! So after cleaning the walls and carpet for the 4th or 5th time I was determined to make something our little sweety couldn't escape from. Grandma had the perfect fabric for the job-an old remnant from Walmart.
I wanted the head space to be big enough that she could get it on, but when it was buttoned, small enough that she couldn't slide out.
I didn't want any clasps or buttons in the crotch, as it needed the least amount of escape routes as possible.
I finished it off with a home made bias tape, making the entire project simple and easy!
The buttons are really big, so that if they happen to come off, she won't be able to choke on them.
So, now that you have all the details, here is a nap time straight jacket that I know baby Houdini would have a hard time escaping from!
