Tutorial : Refashion - Baby Pyjama's (Part 1)

Thanks to our lovely friends we have an abundance of onesies in sizes 000 - 00, in both second hand and new condition. In fact, we have so many that it would be impossible for them to all get worn before they become too small. We don't, however, have a pair of pyjama's for our little man.

In my internet travels I stumbled across a blog showing how to refashion a onesie into a tshirt - cool idea, hey! (it is a shame I can't remember which blog it was).
So I figured if I also made a pair of pants (which I will show you in part 2 of the tutorial) then we could use them as pyjamas.

You will not believe how easy this is to do. I was able to convert the onesie into a tshirt in the time that it took Matty to walk around our block (roughly 20 minutes). Here is how I did it:

First I selected the onesie:

Then I drew a line where I wanted to cut:

Next I cut off the bottom of the onesie:

Then I used the serger stitch on my sewing machine to sew around the bottom edge of the onesie

Finally, I hemmed the bottom edge:

Ta-da! Done... it's as easy as that! The pyjama pants will also be a refashion, using an old t-shirt of either mine or Matty's. I can't wait to finish them off!
