Toddler Friendly T-Shirts from Onesies.


I have tons of onesies that I either got as gifts or I purchased way before my Princess was a toddler. I remember going with my pregnant belly to the clearance section to get clothes of all sizes. I never thought that onesies were not so toddler friendly.

All my 1 1/2 year old wants to do now is run around and play. It gets exhausting just looking at her. She has no time for diaper changes. Sometime I have to plead and bribe her with toys when it's time for a diaper change. Onesies were just one extra step with snaps that I didn't need. I decided to take all of her onesies and cut the bottom part off. Here is how I did it.


1. I used a rotary cutter, ruler and self healing mat to get a nice straight line. I wanted it to be as long as possible so I cut right above the ribbing on the leg part.

 

2. I used my serger to create a nice clean hem without doing too much work. You can also fold under a 1/4 inch and use a zig zag stitch around.

  7. What a great idea! You're so right - they outgrow their onesies, and they get inconvenient! This is great!

  8. Well, my oldest two are learning to sew, so they take all our old socks to use for stuffing little pillows they make for their dolls. We use my husband's old t-shirts for rags.
