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.
How do you upcycle your kids clothes?
