MacGyver at it again...

Corbie's onsies are getting to small & they don't make bigger sizes. So, I had to come up with a way to make his shirts into onsies.

Well....

Yes, that is an excellent idea! I like for Emma to wear onsies too mostly because her shirt keeps coming up. This is a fabulous idea. You should make these to sell or for fundraiser or something. Awesome work Momma!!

I'm testing to see if I can post here too then I will just answer comments here.

Amy,
It really wasn't hard either, a bit time comsumming but it has been working well all day so far. I forgot to say that but yes also to keep his shirt down. Our winters are really cold & when his shirt lifts it's hard to get it back down, he's just to heavy to do both LOL

Caradie,
I was going to suggest that to you awhile back as i noticed he was outgrowning his onsies. The suggestion I had was by adding a piece of material to the onsies. I didn't say anything since i figured that your always so great at new inventions that you already knew about it. One other thing if you have someone who has tight muscle tone and its difficult to dress them. We would cut the back of a sweatshirt and sew in velcro,works like charm and makes
things so much eaiser. I do like your idea with the shirts tho better. So good job Caradie.~Darlene

Darlene,

I had thought about the extra piece to make them longer too but the top of the shirts are starting to be stretched out so they were falling off his shoulders so different shirts were needed anyway. Darlene do you have a speical needs child/adult?

Caradie, No! I don't have anyone at this present time that I am doing cares for,but I did work in a few nursing homes as a CNA for several years and we found that some of our residents were difficult to dress due to their tight muscle tone so we had to come up with an easier plan. Thus as an example as the sweatshirts is what we did. It was much easier on both the resident and ourselves.
Good job with the shirts, I like your idea too. Keep up the great work on your inventions. take care~Darlene

Darlene,

Thank you. Are you the same Darlene that posts on his caringbridge too?

Yes, I am the same person. My dad later in life lost both his legs due to diabeties. He had them both amputated above the knees, so working in nursing homes helped me a great deal when it came to his cares. A little over 4 years ago I lost him and my mother to horrific terminal illnesses.
