5 min underwear upcycle!!

I've been wanting to try this will a bunch of outgrown onsies and I am sold!!!
Forgot to take a picture of the onesie before, but you can see the remaining snaps in the crotch area of the underwear. I used a fold over hemming technique I saw on Pinterest. It was SOOOOO easy! They look really cute in front when on, but it seemed... weird to post a picture. Diaper action shots are so much more G rated! LOL

Clever!
You could probably just serge the two ends together to get rid of the snaps!

I like the snaps! These would make PERFECT EC undies like this. Quick potty breaks in case baby can't pull their panties up/down on their own yet.
