How to make a soft toy from an old onesie
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, one of the best things about those loud and really quite ridiculous things we call toddlers, is putting them into a jumpsuit.
The second a toddler goes into a onesie, they seem to turn from demon child whose off switch and volume control buttons are jammed, to a fricken adorable demon child whose off switch and volume control buttons are broken.
The fluffier the onesie, then cuter the child becomes. And the better you get at dealing with the fact that your toddler just coloured in the cats bum with a red Texta.
If your kid is like mine (or if you are like me) they will get sentimentally attached to at least one of those soft, loveable outfits.
But like it or not, your damn kids keep growing, and before you know it, their favourite outfit no longer fits over their chubby thighs (check out our sugar free tomato sauce recipe if you want to make your kids to fit in their clothes a bit longer 😉 )
So what do you do with that fluffy wad of fabric when it no longer fits your child?
You turn it into the cutest, creepiest snuggle you have ever seen of course!
It’s as simple as turning the onesie inside out and stitching up the arm and leg holes!
Make sure that you zip up your onesie before stitching the neck hole so that it aligns properly, but very importantly, don’t zip it quite to the top.!
Once you’ve finished sewing, you’ll need to unzip the jumpsuit (that’s where leaving a gap at the top comes in handy) and turn it in the right way around.
Now you can go ahead and fill your Childs newest soft toy with bear stuffing (you can just use rags too if you want!)
Now all you need to do is put a few extra stitches in at the top of the zip (so that your toddler can’t open their new snuggle and leave a trail of stuffing through the house)
There you go! I hope your child loves their new soft toy as much as mine does (and you can store it here with all of their other soft toys if they don’t!)
