Refashioned T-Shirt to PJ Pants


My oldest son went through his wardrobe the other day
and gave me a whole heap of t-shirts that he no longer wears.
I thought I'd use some of them to make my little baby some new jammie pants.

I chose a light pink Quiksilver t-shirt and cut a piece of the logo out to add to the bottom of the leg.
It had a very small mark on the top so I added another little patch of the logo.


Then I chose a nice purple t-shirt that had a skeleton riding a bicylce :-\

I guess thats the only problem with using a boys/mans t-shirt for a baby girls project,
sometimes the subject matter doesn't match.

Lucky they are bed pants :-)


I used the hem of the t-shirt for the pink pants.

To get the picture positioned right on the purple pair I had to cut higher into the t-shirt. 
These ones I had to hem myself.

I made this pattern from an old pair of pants that I cut open.
I traced around them and was able to create a pattern piece that only has one inside leg seam.
This makes for a super quick and easy pair of pants that I can whip up in half an hour.


I must use a few more of the t-shirts he gave me to make up some more pants.
I love the result, so quick and comfy.
