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.
