Those are soooooo cute!!! I'm assuming that you are suppose to buy different size pillow cases, standard, queen, etc for the ages of the children that you are making them for? & how would you size those if you're selling them online? A standard size pillow case would be for ages? Queen? King? Thanks!

For the pillowcase link that was given, what do you guys think about the armholes? I am in the process of making one for a 2T, and it seems like the armholes are rather small. Do you guys tweek this pattern? If so, what do you do? Thanks, Corey

Hi from another twin mummy! I have just made my first one of these the other night and found it quite easy. I just have a couple of questions if that's ok?
Some instructions say to put elastic around the neck and extend the arm piping up to the shoulder ties and some just use the ribbon through the casing way. I did the ribbon one. Is the other one better? It looked ok but when I put it on my baby it seemed to keep slipping off the shoulder?
Also have you made these in heavier fabrics for winter, not really heavy maybe just a brushed cotton?
My daughters are 18 months and I made the armholes 3 inch down and 1 1/2 inch across and they seemed to fit ok with a little polo neck underneath if that helps anyone.

OK. Apparently the Anderson Place link is no good anymore so I am just wondering if there was something in that tute that was different from most of the tutes out there? If I was a cat, it would be killing me that I can't see it, LOL!
