Confusing title huh? Don't worry, you'll see what I mean.
So in case you didn't know February was Celebrate the Boy month over at Made By Rae and MADE, if you have boys or know any that you want to make something for seriously go check it out, there are tons of ideas, tutorials, patterns etc etc etc.. I have so many ideas of things I want to make!
Anyways I had planned awhile back to make a shirt using a tutorial I had seen at I am Momma - Hear me Roar, well let's just say it didn't quite turn out like I had envisioned in my head.. I loved the look of the pieced together tshirts but it just wasn't working in shirt form for me..
Well while looking through some of the Celebrate the Boy posts I came across something very similar, pants pieced from old tshirts!!! Genius! It was a feature of Kojodesigns that was on MADE.
So I figure hey I can do that. ...maybe..
So I set about cutting out strips of tshirts.. Big B thought I was nuts for cutting up perfectly good shirts.
And laying out some strips to see what I liked.
So after quite a bit of agonizing over placement this is what I came up with, these were for my BFF's little boy.
The front. Since these are for a 1 year old, I did add an elastic waistband, the tie string is only for decoration.
The back. I left the bottom unhemmed. My friend never gave me measurements so I just had to guess and made them a little bigger than a pair of K's pants.
I do have some more scrap strips cut to make some for my boys and I was planning on waiting to post all of them at once, but I wanted to go ahead and share these.
So what do you think?
I will be linking up here
Have a great day everyone!
