This is not just any DIY craft, but a recycle one. Since baby onesies and shirts have the cutest embroidered and stamped designs, I chose to try to give them an extended life. (Hanging around on tiny clothes hangers in thrift shops is definitely not a way to go.) Our local thrift shop sells the little bitty kiddie clothes for 25 cents, so I drop in every couple of weeks to see if they have something I can use.
As you notice in my photos, I try to use as much of the mini-garment as possible. Sleeves usually show up as ears on this crazy animal cuddlie. Sometimes I choose not to add ears. All of the ribbon loops are washable and securely triple attached. At this time, I do not plan to add anything like buttons or other small embellishments that might be dangerous for babies.
Here are the before and after shots of my Lindy Loopies for Boys:
