Sweet Tooth & Onesie to T-Shirt Tutorial

I've had a sweet tooth lately...

which means smores Sunday night...

and cupcakes Monday...



I have been going through closets, 
trying to filter out clothes that are too small and pull out clothes for this fall...

Abby has all these clothes she has outgrown...
clothes that are my favorite or clothes she only got to wear once...

(this is only one small pile of stuff she has outgrown)

I just kept thinking if they weren't limited by snaps...
she could wear them so much longer...

So here we are...with a onesie to t-shirt tutorial...

So fast & easy!

First:  Use your seam ripper to remove the trim around the legs, so you have as much length as possible.  You may not always need to do this if your onesie is super long...
Second: Use your rotary cutter to make a straight cut across the bottom.

Third:  Measure, fold, and iron for a bottom hem.  
Fourth:  Sew!

Now Abby has a new shirt perfect for a skirt and leggings!
