I used this great tute today.
I’m very much a beginner sewer so this was right up my ally. Instead of using a shirt I used old cord jeans I used to love but can no longer squeeze into. The leg of these was just the right size to cut little toddler pants out of.
Because you use the seams and hems of the original clothing it minimises the work for you
I think it is a great way to get some practice without ruining nice new material and of course use up old daggy stuff that might go in the bin.
I’ll chuck up a photo when I get a chance 🙂
Um I’m hoping this isn’t a double post – I just remember something recently about old clothes.June 23, 2009 at 6:29 am #416637

They look fantastic, and you’re boy is so cute too! :hug:June 23, 2009 at 8:00 pm #416647sewing ladyMember
You did really well with the sewing. I am impressed.
The pants look really good, and the little guy is georgeous!June 23, 2009 at 9:16 pm #416648
There will certainly be more sewing coming from me. It is so satisfying. And can be fast compared to some of the other things I’m interested in.
I’m shocked as to how we made such a handsome little man 🙂 I know he is cute but it just confirms it when other people think so too. I’m not completely biased 😛 Just a little bit.June 23, 2009 at 10:33 pm #416649RobyneMember
when my sons were younger I used my husbands work clothes. He used to get about 6 sets a year but only wore 2 till they wore out. Then they changed the colours of the uniforms so I made them into little clothes for the kids. really strong acid proof lasted till they grew out of them.
Look around the op shops for nice clothes to make for them. I found a lovely long black velvet skirt I was able to make into 2 outfits for bubs.:kiss:June 24, 2009 at 8:08 am #416650mary dollMember
i am a novice sewer also….but god i love it including buying fabric at the op shop.
