So it's not technically "clothing" per se, but it is for kids.  It's a stroller blanket (aka footmuff aka JJ Cole "Bundle Me") made so my kids can't kick their blankets off (which always get wound around stroller wheels, which is super fun) in the winter.  I found a toddler JJ Cole Bundle Me for $5 at a thrift store, but as I have twins, I needed another.  I tried ebay and FB yardsale groups, but got impatient. 

Plus, I had a XXXL Kermit the Frog hoodie from Salvation Army begging to be upcycled.

Here 'tis, all zipped up:

that's brilliant, I am always on the losing side of the stroller blanket battle.
