I made these for the kids just before Christmas. I really wanted the kids to have them for Christmas morning. I took L and K to JoAnns to pick out the fabric. They picked out a crazy soft fleece that goes everywhere when you cut it. I would have to say it was totally worth the fuzzies on everything, because they loved them!
I used Simplicity 4388. I had to buy 2 sets of size ranges in this pattern. I think this pattern would be a great pattern for someone who wants to make a kid robe, but nothing to complicated.
