recycled kid pj's


Made these for my little sister and she had them with her on a visit years and years later. Amazing! I've never had a pair of underwear last that long.

Great tutuorial!  I'm currently trying to potty train my two year old daughter and I think I may have to sew her a bunch of cute panties now to encourage her!  Thanks for sharing!

I absolutely LOVE this idea and your tutorial is sooooo easy to follow and understand! I'm a relative sewing newbie, but I think I can do this!!! Thanks for the great tute and an awesome new way to recycle the billions of T-shirts my kids seem to go through (I only need so many rugs, LOL)!!

I like the way you've mixed fabrics for your panties. I'll have to try this. Thus far, the only fabric mixing I've done on mine is to use a different color for the crotch lining--orange to coordinate with some orange lettering on the butt of one pair and black to look snazzy with some turquoise panties.

Love these!  I really like the fabric mixing too.  Never seen that done before but it makes them extra cute.

Where do you like to buy your fold-over elastic?  I'm guessing you have to order it online?

I bought it at a fabric supply place. Look for it online. It is a pain to pin and sew, regular elastic is easier and looks just fine.

Oh -- good to know!  I thought because your sample had fold-over elastic that the pattern would work best with it.

So for regular elastic, would you just fold in the hem and pin it, then  zig-zag stitch regular elastic over the hem?  (I've made fitted cloth diapers using a similar technique, except the diapers were constructed with multiple layers and the zig-zag stitched elastic was done with the dipes inside out.)
