Show me what you can turn unused clothing into!

I have been playing a lot with the sewing machine, and looking around here on the craft show and tell. One mama had made some yoga pants out of t shirts and I was totally excited!

So far I have made my own yoga pants, a maternity skirt and two belly bands out of clothes I have had sitting around.

I am desperate to see what other mama's have remade their stuff into! I have an entire box of clothes that needs a makeover!

Oh any links to tuts would be awesome!

This wasn't for me, but for DD. I found a cashmere sweater at Goodwill and turned them into a pair of uber-comfy pants for her.

Re: Show me what you can turn unused clothing into!

This is a good one. You can use old tees and flannel shirts if you'd like!

If you have spare fabric laying around, but I'm sure tees would work great as well

I made one of these last night! Thanks for the inspiration, OP and PP! I had the knit left over from a wrap I made for DS1 2 years ago and went shopping in DH's closet for a matching T. Found a super ratty one with paint stains that was the right color, so it's all materials I had on hand that needed to be used.
