I've been busy sewing clothing out of my husband and my castoff t-shirts.  I love getting more use out of our clothing, particularly the shirts that are worn or stained.  Because the clothes I make are small, I can work around the problem areas.  On to the pictures!

These are made from one large men's t-shirt and a couple of scraps from another shirt:

These are made from two medium men's t-shirts.  I have enough fabric remaining to make a color-blocked t-shirt:

I used the following tutorials to draft my patterns for the pajama pieces:

This dress is from an Om t-shirt that my inlaws brought me from India.  The shirt is adorable but was not my size, but I've held onto it for years (because it was a gift).  It's cool to be able to finally use it.  I winged this dress, no tutorial or pattern used.

I made this dress from a free pattern I found on a blog.  Sorry for the blurry picture, for some reason every picture of this dress is blurry.

Pattern: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/warhol-dress-pattern.html

Thanks for looking!

Brilliant ideas. I like them lots.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Haha....it's a shame your kids are so shy! They look great. I'm completely befuddled by knits so I'm always impressed when I see things like this that turned out really well.

Craft till it hurts.

Thanks!  My mom always assured me that knits were terrible to sew, so I avoided them until recently.  There are so many cute knit recons on the site, I just had to try it myself.
