T shirt Pants

Do you guys have as many old T-shirts as we do?  We have lots…and lots…and lots.  So I decided it was time to make the little man some pants.  Using this tutorial.

Here’s the before T-shirt.  I made these from a pair of his 2T pants but added an extra inch all the way around to make them bigger.  And used the bottom of the T-shirt as the bottom hem.  And if you are making 2T or bigger, make sure you have a BIG T-shirt, like XXL so you have enough room to cut the pants length without cutting into the arm pits.

With the extra I made a really ghetto bib.  Now its in the garbage.  Next time maybe I’ll use velcro or something to make the neck smaller.

Now you know….he had Lunchables build-a-pizza for lunch.  And I ate most of it and it was actually good.

Hehe the 'ghetto bib' made me laugh! But I like the idea of turning the tee into pants... goodness knows we have a million tees that never see the light of day.

Love the ghetto bib, it made me laugh! And I love your honesty with the lunchables! I agree, they are actually quite good! I have been known to eat them for lunch from time to time :)

Clever use of the old t-shirts. I wish I had all those t-shirts the kids wore as they were growing up to make a t-shirt quilt for each of them. Unfortunately, they were always donated to charity after they grew out of them.

I learned how to make these pants from Amanda Soule... "Soule Mama."
They are fun to make. Then I made a pair from an old aloha shirt, using the pocket on the front as a hip pocket... it worked like a charm! Yours look super comfy.
