Sweater Top Sleep Sack

I made a wool sleep sack for the new baby.
These are great for using as a nighttime soaker because you can change the baby's diaper without having to remove any clothing!
The bottom has a drawstring that can be untied for access to the diaper area. Then the sleep sack is just pulled up over the diaper, a quick change, and baby's back to sleep in no time! That is, if he even wakes up at all!

The sleep sack works like a regular baby soaker also...everywhere it touches diaper, it will absorb. This keeps baby's crib sheets dry.

I made this partially from a pattern and partially freestyle.
The top portion is from a baby sweater pattern, though I freestyled the sleeves and the neck opening and edging.
The bottom is totally freestyled.
I think it came out rather nicely.

Someone said the pooling of the colors looks like waves hitting the beach. I like that.
