Up-cycled: Onesie Into A Dressing Gown #Upcycled. Hello friends. As the early mornings are started to get cooler it had me thinking of going into town to buy a new dressing gown.
Mollie the Collie, ripped both mine last year when she was a pup by jumping up me first thing in a morning so I need to invest in a new one.
I was moving somethings around in the garage when I found my sons Onesie that he did not want anymore. I looked at it for a while, thinking of what to do with it? Cut it up to make a teddy for my daughter? Make a blanket for Mollie? No, nothing exciting sprang to mind so I chucked it on the charity or tip pile and left it.
Up-cycled: Onesie Into A Dressing Gown #Upcycled
The next morning I was having my extra five minutes snooze as I did not want to get got of bed early as it felt a little chilly. I diffed off into a little sleep Zzz..
I started dreaming I was up-cycling my son’s Onesie into a dressing gown to keep me warm!! I woke up in a hurry and thought, what a great idea! It would also save me money having to buy a dressing gown. Bonus!!
My son brought his Onsie for Uni but only ended up wearing it once or twice.He was not ever a big fan of them like me and his brothers and sister were.
Getting set on my brilliant idea. What could go wrong it is only something no one wanted!?
Getting Started On My Up-cycling Project:
First up I cut across the legs where I wanted the dressing gown to finish. Next up, unpicking the stitches around the legs, the bum bit, then the front bit between the legs and I took the zip out.
Next up I popped the front bits of material together to cut a straight line where the extra material would have been for the legs and same on the back. To make it all in line.
Then I sewn everything by zig zag stitch to make it look professional. I sewn the back of the dressing gown together, made a hem around the bottom and sewn the fold down up the front to finish it off nicely. And the end result!?
It still has it head and tail on to so it looks great.
I love how it turned out and I am very happy with it. I have 2 Onesies of my own but I never wear them as even in Winter thy are too warm. I am thinking of doing the same to them. Also the first thing my daughter said to me was “Aww cool” “Will you turn my Onesie into a dressing gown mum?”
Guess this what I am doing this week?
