If anyone wants an easy first time jon-jon pattern it is the Martha Pullen pattern in her yellow applique book. (it comes with a girls a-line dress pattern and an apron pattern also.)

Little boys in blue!
I LOVE this blue seersucker and had been trying to figure out what I could make with it for the boys. For Cooper I finally decided on a pair of shorts with a applique sailboat t-shirt. For Carter I went with a simple jon-jon with red initials. Both the shorts and the jon-jon patterns are very simple sewing and are great for the beginner sewer. For the jon-jon I did something different this time. I altered the pattern and added snaps to the bottom. It was a first for me, and I was excited that it actually worked!! The pattern calls for a closed bottom, but snaps make is ALOT easier for diaper changes!
