Cardigan Onesie — TAKE 2Posted: November 6, 2012
So, when I started my cardigan onesie making process, I committed to make one for four different families that are expecting boys in the next few months. The first one was tough, but I chalked that up to a learning curve. The second one was still tedious, but much easier. And the third and fourth ones were a nightmare. I posted about my frustration on Facebook and a friend pointed me in the direction of THIS tutorial that took the original idea and simplified it. OH. EM. GEE. I went from spending almost 3 hours on one cardigan to whipping them out in 30 minutes or less.
Instead of using jersey knit (the BANE of my existence!!) for the lining, I used bias tape. SO MUCH EASIER. Also, I used buttons instead of snaps. I just sewed the two sides together while sewing the button on so they’re not technically functional, but what baby needs functioning buttons on his cardigan?? I haven’t decided if I like the look of the buttons or snaps better…
So…what do you think?? Do you like one version better than the other? Do you prefer buttons or snaps?
