If your toddler is anything like mine, getting them to stand, sit or maintain a position conducive to snapping a onesie closed has become a nearly impossible task. If your dryer is anything like mine (and you have the tendency toward forgetting to snap onesies closed, like I do), you’ve probably lost a few onesie snaps to the machine. And if you have a friend, relative or are yourself anything like my mom, who has bought every adorable onesie ever made for her only granddaughter, you likely find yourself with a closet full of barely worn onesies that you now avoid or can’t use.
When my mom was visiting us this past week, I mentioned to her that Baby Carrot has become too wiley to make putting onesies on her a worthwhile endeavor, and I felt awful because have a ton of adorable onesies that are going unused. I was planning to pass them on to friends or donate them, until my mom offered to turn them into t-shirts instead. The process ended up being so incredibly brilliant and simple that I just had to share it.
1) Grab a onesie or jumper (aka, anything with snaps). It can be one that got damaged, like the one in my picture below (thanks, dryer!) or just one that you no longer plan to use with snaps for whatever reason. Cut a straight line as close to the leg seams as possible (or higher, if you want to make shorter tops), to cut off the snaps.
