Onesies extenders

I found this great idea for onesies extenders that I just had to share! I know, I know, we're in the middle of talking about ideas for non-verbal communication, but this is just too good to pass up. There is someone, somewhere, who could use this information today and it deserves to be shared.

Kimbo, at "A Girl and a Glue Gun," posted a wonderful tutorial for sewing cute and very practical onesies extenders. The question comes up among families with kids-bigger-than-toddlers quite frequently about where to find large-sized onesies. There are a host of reasons:  protecting diapers from busy hands, hiding g-tubes away from still other busy hands, keeping undershirts tucked into wheelchair pants...if you're a parent of a kid who needs to be in onesies long after their size is commercially available, go ahead and insert your specific reason here: ___________________________.

Kids tend to grow long and lanky after toddlerhood and the first sign of "shrinking" onesies is seen at the crotch rather than in the width around the chest. Kimbo's solution is simple, inexpensive (unlike the speciality adapted onesies--OUCH!), fairly quick, and requires very minimal sewing skills.

So, many thanks to Kimbo. Enjoy!
