My Mood:
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. 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:



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 )


Part of this Ralph Lauren tee:



Became these 2T/3T lounge pants:






.... and this sweet guy sat by and supervised it all.
