My friends tease me for saying "I can make that" whenever we go shopping anywhere (or out to eat!)but they love that I can craft things that I would otherwise buy for more money.

T-Shirt to Un-Tucked Onesie

I have a little guy who is super squirmy. I have put him in T-shirts before and they are a pain in my rear. He squirms, the shirt comes up, I fix it and then it all happens again. It’s super annoying.

My first post on Arizona Mama was how to turn a blow-out onesie into some cute-ness on a burp cloth. I saved the bottoms from that same onesie to put them on the bottom of a t-shirt. While I was telling someone about this at work, they suggested that I make it so it could look un-tucked when worn with pants, so that their little guy didn’t look like a nerd all the time. I love the look of it now, and it was so easy, I want to go buy tons of t-shirts and ruined onesies at goodwill to make more!

We're using the bottom half of this onsie

Bottom half of a onesie (can be stained!)
T-shirt(should be the same size as the onesie)
Sewing Materials

The first step is to pin the bottom half of the onesie to the t-shirt. Use a regular onesie to compare lengths. The onesie should be underneath, a few inches higher than the bottom of the t-shirt. Pin it in place. If your onesie is a smaller width than the t-shirt center it. the sides of the t-shirt won’t need to be sewn only where the onesie and t-shirt meet.

Make sure your thread is the same color as the t-shirt, it will make the stitching less noticeable.

Sew a straight line on the front of the onesie, and make sure to re-enforce each side. Do the same for the back.

That’s all it takes now, all you have to do it try to get your baby to smile for the camera!

    Did you leave the sides open since the shirt on top is larger? I can’t picture how the underside looks. I just found this on pinterest and want to try this for my daughter
