Remember that first onesie I made?
And then I just couldn’t help myself and I made a bunch more?
You’ll probably also remember that we never made them fasten on the bottom and in fact fucked up the only one we tried to
Well, because I used a 6-9 month onesie as the template, and Zoe now wears that onesie, I figured it was about time to make them fasten so that she can wear them before she outgrows them. Genius over here.
Me and the snaps just weren’t jiving so I decided to just go with velcro that we already had on hand
Chris and I never snap the middle snap on Zoe’s onesies, so I thought using 2 pieces of velcro like only using the two snaps would be sufficient enough. I cut the velcro into small pieces
They’re adhesive on the back side, so I pressed it onto the shirt
Then I set the opposite side against it
And then folded the shirt up against it and pressed down
And presto! A brand new onesie!
Then I just repeated the process for the rest of them
The Obama one is a lost cause though because we fastened the snap backwards and those rivets have a fucking death grip on the fabric
Ready for a Zoe fashion show?
Social statement Zoe
World Peace Zoe (the graphic is earth being held up by a little kid)
Self-promotion Zoe (or, actually, parent promotion as she’s wearing a onesie with our handyman biz name on the front and contact info on the back, bahahahahaha)
Rapper Zoe (a shirt from a show by the same artist who is featured on the CD of Zoe’s mobile)
And Local Love Zoe
Here’s her breakdancing pose
It’s nice to actually be able to use these onesies, especially now that she fits in them already.
I love how serious she looks during her fashion show! Your onsies came out great; I just wish my Zoe was little enough again to wear some.
I'm enjoying reading your blog, I love your house!!
Cute! Maybe you can make the Obama onesie into a T-shirt.
