My son in law sent a bag of hand-me-downs to my two teenage sons and there was one shirt that neither of them claimed. I was going to put it in my Goodwill bag, but on further inspection I decided I really liked the fabric and figured there was enough of it to make some really cute pants for a friends new baby boy.
I found this adorable and FREE pattern and tutorial here.
It didn't take long at all to whip up these baby pants and if it hadn't been for the snaps and pocket on the front of the shirt I would have had enough fabric to make a second pair. Then I came across this cutie here . Are these bibs precious or what? And did you see the other projects she made using old button down shirts? So cute!
So I got to work cutting out the bib pattern and in no time at all I had a precious (and free) baby gift.
Okay, I did have to run out and get some coordinating bias tape for the bib, but everyone knows I would have found my way to the fabric store this weekend anyhow. Now I can't wait for the next bag of hand-me-downs. I think I'll be going through it before the boys do!
