Upcycling Fun! Clothes Become... CLOTHES!
 
It's been a while since I've done any upcycled clothing beyond a wool cover here and there for my kids as they've needed them, but the other day the bug bit me so I started digging for suitable clothes just begging to be cut up and repurposed. :giggle: The results:

Part of this NWT cotton Chaps sweater:

became these super-stretchy 6-12 months leggings:

with a U-shaped butt panel so they have added diaper and growth room without that awkward these-used-to-be-sleeves look upcycled pants often have: :giggle2:

These like-new LL Bean tees:

became this 12-24 months+ dress and leggings set:

and these 12-24 months leggings:

(they're not actually uneven, just failed to notice the bump in the hips when I was photographing :banghead: )

I love the cute contrasting "butt panels"!
I'm on an upcycling kick right now too. So much fun! I'm dangerous as I rummage through closets looking for things to cut up!

Skeptical baby is skeptical :giggle:

Upcycles are so adorable!

LOVE!!! I haven't done any up-cycling in a while either. Hopefully soon, I do have a pile set aside of shirts to use.
