Upcycling My Husband's "Dam" TShirt Into a Baby Onesie/Gown


I made these onesies years ago (way before I started blogging) for Avery.   It was a great way to reuse my husband's "dam" shirt, that he could no longer fit (see image below to get the joke).  It took me a while to find the original tutorial that I used but I this is it: http://thismamamakesstuff.com/tutorial-rockin-baby-gown-t-shirt-refashion/.  While I was searching for the instructions I used I found this one: http://knitnatak.blogspot.com/2012/01/t-shirt-onesie-tutorial.html I like this one because it uses the original tshirt collar.  The first tutorial has you sew cut out the original collar and hem it with a zig zag stitch, which I found to be rather challenging.  If you use the first tutorial again I would put bias tape on the colar to make it look more finished.
Alexis's dam shirt now.

This is another one of my husbands shirts that he wore back in his youth.




The gown is getting on the short side for Alexis,  maybe I'll cut it shorter and make it into a baby t.

  2. Tennis balls, wiffle balls, ping pong balls, and golf balls can also be used.
    Each program will have a box with a checkmark, find the programs you'd like to uninstall and uncheck that box. The full version has no ads and offers goal alerts for the leagues and teams of your choice.

  3. Hello, I do think your website could be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in
    I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!
