I’ve been spending quite a bit of my time sowing lately, so when a friend of mine asked for some help turning her son’s onesie into a T-shirt for his third birthday, I was ready to go. It was a quick and easy project really great for beginning sowers. Here is the step by step how to.
One: Start out by measuring the onesie on the child who will wear it. It needs to be long enough to really look like a shirt, about an inch and a half over their waist band. If the onesie isn’t long enough you can add extra material in a coordinating color later.Two: Place your metal ruler on the onesie, and line it up to your cut marks. Then using a rotary cutter slice off the excess fabric. Three: Fold over the fabric .5″ and iron to set it, then fold and iron it again. Four: Look at the style of the stitching on the sleeves and collar, and try to match it as closely as possible. On this t-shirt it was a two straight stiches a .25″ apart. Here you can see me just about to start the second line of stiches.And there he is playing away!
