Our little one desperately needed some winter pj's and loathe as I am to go to the mall I decided to make him a pair using thrifted items.
I cut into a thrifted sheet using pattern pieces from two different patterns, thinking they'd be done within the afternoon but cutting was as far as I got. Distractions a plenty, the pj pieces sat there taunting me.
Seeing our little one running around in pj's that were now ankle freezers with a 3/4 sleeve gave me the budge I needed on the weekend to set aside some sewing time. The top was a little time consuming but the pants were a cinch to make. I am rather pleased with how they have turned out and thrilled that they cost less than $1 in thrifted bits and pieces. I think a few more pair are in order.
Do you reuse thrifted items for things other than their intended use?
