DIY Disney Onesie to T-shirt Conversion
So off to the internet I went, scouring for a way to easily hem what seemed to be 25 shirts. And because we have a girl, I found exactly what I needed! This lettuce edge tutorial by Betz White saved my day! In fact, it really helped some of the boyish onesies look more like they were intended for a girl. Happy accidents! This is one of those moments where I slapped my head and thought, now why didn't I think of that! It's easy, painless, and you probably have the supplies you need right at your sewing table.
The first thing I did was cut off the onesie as low as possible. I wanted to give myself some room to mess up (and Minnie seems to have either a long torso or a big belly, depending on the day!). I then read through the tutorial and followed it step by step. I felt fairly certain as I was sewing that it wasn't going to be as cute as the ones in the pictures, but when it was all done an I held it up, I was amazed at how good it looked! Now I wouldn't say it looked professional, but for a baby who's going to trash it before breakfast? Perfect!
Until next time, may all your days be filled with fairy dust!
