    Don't throw that stained onesie away! There are many things you can do to cover up common "offenders" of onesies. Old spit up stains, poopie "blow out" diaper stains (you mom's know what I mean by this!) and the many other things that little ones can do to a common onesie! This particular onesie had little stains at the top and at the bottom... I didn't have a reason to get rid of it since I use the stained ones anyway, but I wanted to see if I could fix this one up a bit more since it had been through 2 other girls and is about to go through 3! Here is what I came up with, and I am sure that you all have some great ideas too... so if you have a link to a onesie "redo" please hook me up! Supplies for the "ballerina" onesie Old Onesie (Mine was newborn size)- preferably stains that are in areas easy to cover up! ruffles or rosettes- found mine at Hobby Lobby- I used 1 yard which was "just enough" for the newborn size, so you will need more for a bigger size onesie (it was 5.99 a yard, but I used a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby- they do this promotion a lot!) Grosgrain Ribbon 7/8 inch Thin Grosgrain Ribbon (not sure the size, but any "thin" will do) Needle/ Thread/ Sewing Machine Time to get started! First asses your onesie.. make note of where the stains are! I made sure that my ruffles covered everything up except on the sleeves which I was going to get rid of anyway. Now it's time to start sewing! The Zig Zig stitch works best- because this will need to stretch! The pic below is what they looked like before adding them... notice that they are all placed on a tulle backing. Also I don't have a picture of the grosgrain ribbon, but I just tied a long bow and attched it to the side of the onesie after putting on the rosettes. Hand stich the rosettes to the collar of the onesie. After that cut the sleeves off just enough so that there is enough material to make a double roll on the inside. Turn the onesie inside out and roll the sleeves back. (notice that this pic is not a double roll!!!) I ended up using a double roll though- so make note! From there just sew around to secure the roll. After sewing tie a ribbon tightly around the top of the sleeves with a bow. Now it is finished!!! You have a beautiful outfit out of an old onesie! Also notice the headband that I made with the leftover scraps and some pantyhose... maybe the tutorial for that will be next! :)

Darling tutu dress tutorial -- just a little sewing to make a tulle and fabric baby dress.

overall tutu.. perfect for my future southern ballerina

Overall tutu. Absolutely adorable! Barefoot with no shirt underneath would make some gorgeous pictures.

love this ~almost has a dropped waist effect and then the edges and layers are quite eye catching

tutu overall dress must try but w/ fabric instead of or with tulle

not so much a fan of tutus and ruffles but this is really cute- especially with those boots :) maybe someday there will be a little girl for me to dress up

I have heard of this, super cute and easy, bella is too old for this but cute for your girls!! How to Make a Tutu- will probably want this at some point. Great for toddlers, girl's bed skirts, round tables...

onesie dress! I think I might just have to try this - Easy and cute. I've made a couple different onesie dress styles. They're also very convenient as there is no search for a matching bloomer and the dress doesn't ride up and let a fat baby belly hang .
