I thought about giving it away, but on an idle Sunday afternoon while the Bean was sleeping, I decided to give it the chop and upcycle it. The result was a lovely, practical, and perfectly-sized cardie for a toddler. Added bonus: this is so simple to do!
I'm so thrilled with it. Though it might seem a shame to cut up something new and unworn, at least this way the Bean gets to wear his Bisa's present. And of course, I'm now rummaging through his stack of old baby onesies to see if I can make him any more!
A onesie that no longer fits (the one I used was a 12m size, to fit my 18-24m size toddler. It was fairly wide and long in the body, but short in the legs)
needle & thread or hemming tape
2. Cut off the legs, just above the crotch.
At the moment it's still too warm for him to wear it during the day, but I see this coming in very handy as the weather turns cold - it's simply perfect for when you want something soft and warm to potter about in at home but a long-sleeved jumper is just too cumbersome. Especially if you're a toddle in perpetual motion.
