PJ Pants...

I often save old clothes to up cycle into something new, but rarely to I actually get around to using them. This time when a grown up pair of PJ pants were destined for the bin I got enthusiastic (having recently made a pattern block) & got started.

Upcycled PJ Pants

I salvaged the pocket, which I repositioned once I had cut out the pants & to save time I used the original leg hems.

Ryder is pretty happy to have PJ pants just like Dad's, not happy enough to model them for me though...

They look great! I always have intentions of doing things like that but never get around to it, I just end up passing clothes onto someone smaller instead!

I know, they're great ideas but finding time is often the tricky bit...good on you for following through...xxt

Great idea! I recently turned two old dresses and one high waisted skirt that didn't fit, into three skirts that do fit! It's a good feeling isn't it?

Love the photos.
