I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but I had a baby almost a year ago. She is so sweet and has tons of hair, which is a first for me. We have all loved having her in our home. I have been having so much fun making things for her. It’s so nice to start a project and finish it all in the same day.
Another thing about me…I am so clumsy and often spill on myself and splatter on my shirt while cooking dinner. I have ruined too many shirts in the past few months. I decided to see if I could re-purpose them. There are so many options, but I love little leggins for babies the best. I know there are so many tutorials out there, so if you can handle one more, here it is.
Items you need:
Grab an old T-shirt or tank top.
A pair of leggins that fit your baby or the size you want to make.
1″ elastic (I like the woven kind)
Step Four: Lay the two pieces of fabric on top of each other. Be sure to have the folded end on the same side for both pieces. (Mine are on the right side, left side is the open end of fabric). Lay the leggins with the bum side to open end on top of the fabric. I have a 1/2″ of fabric all the way around to allow for seam allowance and to make them bigger. Make sure the bottom of the tank top (the hemmed edge) is at the bottom of the pants. Then you don’t have to hem your leggins. Yay for short cuts.
Step Seven: Turn one leg right side out stuff inside the other leg. Be sure to line up the inside seams.
Step Seven continued: It should look like this! Right sides are touching. Sew along the smile line at the top. Be sure that the seams stay lined up.
Here is another tank top that I loved too…
