But no worries! Impulse buys can find new life once they pass through a pair of scissors and a sewing machine. Using this tutorial from Prudent Baby, I was able to make a pair of wool jams.
It's so easy I felt like I was doing it wrong. Until the moment I actually put them on him and they were awesome, as promised.

I even made things hard for myself and added a butt-patch. I probably didn't need to, but was skeptical about a higher rise taking care of a load as wide as our cloth overnight diapers.
Now I have two big squares of cable knit wool (the body of the sweater) to do with as I please.
Throw pillow? Quilt patch? Felt purse? Coffee sleeve? I'm open to suggestions!
