SOOO quilting has kinda been my thing for the last year or so, but I have not quilted a stitch in at least a week. Not because I don't still love it, but I just have not had the time because I have been learning about my NEW love--re-purposing. I am sure some people find it a crazy weird thing to do, but I find making something junky into something GREAT---well GREAT!!!! AND I cannot stop myself. Now that I went yard sale-ing this weekend I have plenty of junk to work with too--I can hardly sleep at night thinking about all of the fun things I have to make. ANYWHOOO, after making Em's smiley face dress, I decided I NEEDED yellow leggings to finish off the outfit. SO I headed back to blog tutorial world and found THIS great tutorial on making pants out of old t-shirts. So I went back to the cheer t-shirt I made the belt out of...and made some matching leggings.
Now I could lie and say I am sad to ruin this cheer shirt, but I have about a hundred shirts from over the years and don't mind losing a few:) Plus Em looks cuter in her pants than I would have EVER looked in that shirt.
SO my first foray (is that a word??) into pants making was super easy AND a success. Now I want leggings in EVERY color---I can never find them at the stores!!! SOO next week I might need to find some fun old t-shirts at the yard sales and make some more pants. These took about 35 minutes to make and the tutorial was simple!!!!
I cut up another of my old t-shirts and made another skirt too. Now this shirt was still cute, but it had one problem---It was getting smaller AND I WASN'T!!! SO I used this tutorial again and it was a quick 30 minute transformation.
Kinda needs some pink leggings--dont ya think??:)
