Great job!! I'm planning to order some of this merino jersey fabric to make woolly unders for our family. At $18/yard it's considerably cheaper to do it this way. I can get a lot of tiny baby things from one yard of 80" wide fabric.

While I'd love for my ds to have multiple one piece woolies to keep him warm this winter while keeping his cloth diaper covered with no shirt riding up on his back, I just can't bring myself to purchase multiples of these when there are so many other things vying for our dollars.
A while ago, WindyCityMom posted in the sewing forum looking for a tutorial for making a snow suit out of sweaters. That led me to such a tutorial and from that, these were born:
Depending on your thrift store, you can have a cashmere romper for your little on for as little as $6-$10, plus the cost of thread - less if you use lambswool or merino, etc. I used two; cutting the arms off and making them the legs and then another sweater for the arms. The key (unless you know how to install zippers and I've never done that) is finding a sweater that buttons up, but is not a cardigan.
That's so nice! So is it clothes or a snowsuit? What are the links for snowsuits out of sweaters you referred to? I'm interested in that as well!
