Granted it wasn't a whole lot of sewing and it only took me an hour ... But it's still blog worthy!
We made the ever-so-popular Onesie Cardigan!
We bought this onesie at Once Upon A Child, a local children's consignment shop for 2$.
This one has a fixed neck opening with side snaps on the left shoulder.
Step 1: remove neck band (this was a tad tricky at the snaps but we managed)
Step 2: Cut down the center - when you are nearing the snaps veer off to one side and cut between two snaps
Step 3: at the armpit level, mark a line starting at the center cut and up to each shoulder
Step 4: cut out these two triangles
Step 5: line with bias tape and pin in place (packaged or homemade - I had a package of green bias tape that needed to be used and loved the color contrast)
Step 6: Sew through bias tape - be sure to sandwich the onesie with the tape and sew through all 3 layers!
Step 7: pick out cute buttons and sew on - I sewed through both layers of the onesie so they aren't working buttons. If you wanted working buttons, you'll have to make holes ... :/
And viola! A cardigan onesie!
Bridger is sleeping so I can't try it on him ... But he will be wearing it next week so keep your eye out for pictures :)
