For this challenge, I decided to dig into my stash of DJ's clothes that no longer fit him.I ended up digging up several old tie-dye onesies and t-shirts...



I cut them up into strips:



And refashioned the strips into a pair of pants!

Thanks for looking!

Haha, thanks! Though I must admit the punk influence comes from my husband. I'm the hippie in this equation. Smiley

Those.  Are Awesome.  And they look like they fit him great!  When he outgrows them, you can hack 'em up again.  What's next?  Ohhhh a t-shirt scarf would be so cool from those patterns.   Wink
