Thanks to generous friends and family, we have more clothing than either of my boys could ever wear. I feel like it would be a shame to pack up all those great, barely worn clothes to save for a future baby (and another boy at that), so I thought I'd alter them into something usable now.
Here's what I did...
I gathered up onesies that are already too short for my 1 year old.
Then, using my quilter's ruler to keep things even, I cut straight across, just above the trim on the leg holes.
Then I serged and hemmed the bottom. (Knits don't ravel, so just hemming without serging would have worked fine, too.)
That's it! In just a few minutes, I made great new toddler shirts from old onesies!
