Recycled wool clothing pics?

Hi, I am looking for inspiration for recycled wool clothing, like Kiya's Naturals (Batik Bum) I have looked a bit on etsy, but would love to see action pics! I want to make a cute romper or something for my LO from recycled wool sweaters. Anyone care to share pics? thanks

Ooo...I know someone who needs to share pics! Too bad you can't tag people on DS...

Upcycled overalls:





Shortalls that we will keep for a long time (this is when DS was a beginning walker)

Here is my Memphis in his favorite recycled woolies, when he was younger.

Love the footies, I will keep that in mind when it gets colder, do you use a pattern for them?

Also, littleleaf, did you make those yourself? Are the edges finished, love the little short bibs! Did you have a probelm wicking onto the shirt under the bibs? I always wondered about that. thanks so much for the pics, how adorable!

ETA: Steph those booties are super cute!

Yes, I made the overalls. I finished the edges for the pair on top, but I just left the edges raw for the shortalls. I didn't have issues with wicking onto the shirt, but then again, my kid had (and still has) a big belly, which helps hold the shirt up, I suppose!

At some point, I was hoping to release my patterns for the overalls and footies, but I haven't gotten around to digitizing them yet!
