Another thing about me...I am so clumsy and often spill on myself and splatter on my shirt while cooking dinner. I have ruined too many shirts in the past few months. I decided to see if I could re-purpose them. There are so many options, but I love little leggins for babies the best. I know there are so many tutorials out there, so if you can handle one more, here it is.
Items you need:
Grab an old T-shirt or tank top.
A pair of leggins that fit your baby or the size you want to make.
1" elastic (I like the woven kind)
Step One: Lay out tank top
Step Two: Cut up both sides of tank and across the straps to make two separate pieces (front and back)
Step Three: Fold both pieces in half
Step Five: Cut out shape of pants. Make sure you leave a 1" edge above the fabric at the top so you have enough to fold over for elastic waistband.
Step Six: Fold the fabric with the right sides touching and sew from bottom of bum to the end of leg. Repeat for other leg.
Step Eight: Turn right side out - sew waistband, add elastic and you are done!
And the sweet leggins it created. I took the flowers off the top to make a headband for my baby as well.
I love this project because it is fast, easy and turns out so cute. It's also great to re-purpose something...in this case the shirt I wore to the hospital the day my baby was born. I hope you give this a try - I'd love to see your projects too! Contact me with any questions, I'm happy to help.
