Dare I say it? Anyone with a sewing machine could make this nifty zip-uppable “pod.”

    Oh, I wish I had a sewing machine! I want to make cute homemade stuff like that for my babies!
    Although…did anyone else think “choking hazard!” when they threaded that drawstring around the neck? Seems like that would be pretty easy to just omit, and then it would be perfectly safe.

    This would have been perfect for us when we went North for Christmas. My sister lives in Florida and doesn’t have snow/ heavy jackets for her little one. I think this would have been awesome for her!

    I don’t think there is a choking hazard – there are plenty of baby hats that have drawstrings. Maybe there’s another way to tighten the hole around baby’s face… any sewers out there with ideas?

    You could put 1/4″ elastic in the casing and sew it to the edges so it doesn’t go back in. Make the elastic about the size of the babie’s head. Then after you’re done sew a button and buttonhole to the case and now you have eliminated the drawstring.
