One of the most special gifts you can give a Estella onesies organic is a custom baby onesie. Made from a silky soft bamboo rayon/spandex blend, these onesies are ideal for babies with sensitive skin, as they’re naturally hypoallergenic and breathable.
They’re also a great choice for babies who need to wear a diaper all day, as the fabric is thick enough to hold up through multiple wash cycles. They’re also available in a variety of colors and can be monogrammed for added personalization.
The three snap closures on these onesies are placed higher, in the front of the crotch, so you’ll be able to open and close them easily. They also come in sizes from preemie through 24 months, so you can pick the best fit for your little one.
From Yarn to Onesie: The Joy of Creating a Handmade Baby Outfit
Add a hood to any of these rompers for extra warmth. Or turn them into an adorable winter jumper by adding a flannel lining and a fun pom pom on the leg.
Hem the inseam if making long-legged onesies to keep them from riding up. Working from the wrong side of the fabric, fold down the inseam by about 1 inch (2.5 cm) and topstitch it down using a zigzag stitch and a thread color that matches your fabric.
Lastly, if you’re knitting an outfit for a baby that’s due in the summer or the winter, pick a knit with a lower neckline and sleeves. This will ensure the knit can get worn more and longer.
