Ah almost perfect alliteration.
Don't you love a baby in a onesie? I know there are so many cute clothes out there, but sometimes I just love seeing those chubby thighs and arms in the cheapest, most boring piece of clothing out there. I mean really, lookBut I have found a way to use these simple one pieces to my advantage. First let's start with just decorating them. I had a sip n' see a few weeks back and they had a table full of onesies and things to decorate them with. Take a look at a few of my favorites. Cute right?
You can also applique on them just like you can a regular old t-shirt. I've done a monogram for a friend, and my cousin got me these cute newborn onesies that I'm so sad no longer fit.
And then there's the easiest baby dress you'll ever make. I got the inspiration here and made these two dresses. (and seriously 10 minutes- I made 2 within the span of one nap time!)
I had trouble though with the gathered fabric bunching- it's kind of difficult to manipulate fabric on such a small scale- so I ended up chopping off the bottom of the onesie and just attaching the skirt to the top. I think it might make it last longer too, plus how cute will this be with skinny jeans in the fall? And yes H has skinny jeans...
Now sadly C is left out in the cold here, haven't figured out a way to make him something with a onesie that isn't too difficult. Don't think he minds too much though- do you?
