ONESIE EXTENDER TUTORIAL

Hi Everyone! 

If your kid is outgrowing his onesies way faster than you can make money to buy new ones? or, if the baby is too long and the onesie too short, but if you size up they swim in the thing? Then, this tutorial is for you. 

I put together a onesie extender tutorial after realizing that I am indeed NOT made of money. FYI, this is definitely not all fancy and cute, since it is going on my son's butt I figured it just needed to be easy and functional. :O)   Let me know if there is something you don't understand or need help with. Good luck! link back to me if you make some.  Took about 4-5 minutes from beginning to end to make 2, total costs: .50cents ( i got 2 carters onesies for .25cents each at my local thrift store..you may be thinking, "why make an extender if you can find them so cheap?" Because they hardly ever have the right size. 

Materials: 

 First, I cut out the area were the snappies are (about 3" high), crop it a little so its straight
 
 second, i attached one to the other with pins.. make sure that they are facing the right direction (look at the picture)

 Thirdly, i sewed about 1/4" in from the edge... i sewed it twice to reinforce it. 

 VOILA!


THAT'S IT! Here is my little man using his. (check out those cute thighs!)

  3. (I tried to type a comment but not sure where it went?) I googled "onesie extender" and found your reply on a forum. THANK YOU for this tutorial. I didn't want to spend so much money to ship onesie extenders to me (in Canada) and I really didn't want to make them myself with all those snaps... I don't want to learn how to do that. But I can sew a straight line on a sewing machine! I'm going to use onesies I don't like to extend the life of onesies I do like... for free! Thanks so much for this!!

  4. Hi. I would like to design a pattern to make my own ''from scratch'' without cutting up another baby gro. if I may ask, what is the finished length and width of your extender. I live in South Africa and these things have not come available here for some reason. Thanking you in advance.
