♥To crochet or Not to crochet???♥

My niece got the exact same shirt from her dad for Christmas, that my mom bought her months ago. It was also in the same size.  But, he caught it on sale for 2 bucks (I know this because it still had the price tag on it). Great deal. But, kinda pointless to waste gas taking it back to the store.  So with my crazy sewing, I stitched a line across the middle. Then, I crocheted a little skirt onto it.



I even added a little crocheted heart on the skirt to match the hearts all over the onesie.




I actually got the idea from these Twins on YouTube, called Doublestitch:

Thanks for looking.....

I love this! I have a friend who is having twin girls and I have been looking for a different crochet craft I can make for her.  Thanks for the fantastic idea.
Your neice is adorable!

this is such an awesome craft for extending the wear of kids clothes! I have cut the snaps out of many onesies, and added a new sewn on skirt for DD, and you can of course taking this idea, you can actually CUT the middle of the onsie out, add 2 inches of crochet, sew the two halves on, add the skirt to the croched middle and you have now made a size 12 mo onsie into a size 28months OUTFIT! Smiley

Also, adding a cute rippley cuff to leggings or long sleeves will give you another 3-6 months of length!
