So in preparations for Emmylou turning TWO (!), we've been getting rid of all the clothes that no longer fit her, to make room for a new haul - she's grown like weeds in the past few months! Isn't it so hard to get rid of their adorable teeny tiny clothes??! SADFACE! But alas, we must. I am saving some things to make a baby-clothes-quilt (I think. Maybe. I don't know.), but most of it we're donating.
I came across these two onesies, and knew I could still make them work!
An 18 month St. Patty's Day onesie that was too long last year, but too short this year! It still had the tags on it! And she IS a McCutie! So, I hacked off the bottom to make it a top:
Then I put the bottom part on Emmy's head and went to town on the serger.
Behold - my first ever lettuce edge hem!
This took literally like 10 minutes, not counting changing the serger thread and settings and all. Hooray for baby clothing longevity-creating!!
This next one I just flat out could not part with. It's my favorite of all of her wee onesies!
Oh swoon. :)
So it's the same problem with this one - it's just too short, but fits fine otherwise. Here's what I did to fix it up:
POM POMS! :D
That's all - just sewed on pompom trim! Now it'll fit her through the summer! WIN!
Convo between me and the Hubs while I was pinning on the pomps':
Me: "I'm adding red pompoms to this onesie, but it has no red in it."
Hubs: "Now it does."
Have a great day everyone! Is it warm where you are? We're in the 50's up here in Massachusetts! C'mmmon, Spring!
