a couple of weeks ago my friend sent 5 old tees and i was able to repurpose four of them for her baby. (who should be arriving shortly!) here's what i made:



i actually did redo all five, but decided the shorts i made would be way too small for the little guy. (now my dog is sporting a pair of black undies.) i think everything is pretty self explanatory. onesie, bib, hat and tag blankie. i was quite surprised at how well everything turned out. my only complaint that made reconstructing difficult: the weights of some of the tees. a few were made of that paper-thin t-shirt material that is extremely hard to work with. thanks for looking.

Those look great.

Did you back the bib with anything, or is it just a single layer of t-shirt?

i loosely followed the shape of a store bought one. i'm not sure if the neck will be too big, i'll have to wait and see it on the baby and then make adjustments.

yep, i used some medium weight interfacing and some flannel fabric for the back. it was way too flimsy not to use anything.
