So…last year Holly gave me a rather natty pair of leggings for Christmas. I love a festive themed clothing gift as much as the next person, but sadly these never made the move from present to personal apparel….happily the fabric was perfect for turning into something else that would be worn- hooray for repurposing.
This blog has a BRILLIANT tutorial for baby leggings, all my old t-shirts from here on in are being made into leggings (if you want to do skirts instead see our previous post about jersey baby skirts).
Using a double needle as she mentions in the blog will make such a difference to your jersey sewing. Make sure you also pull gently as you sew so that the final product with retain it’s stretch (especially important with waistbands for little pot-bellies!)
…and enjoyed it so much I made another pair for F, and a quick and easy applique heart with some left over material. This onsie is one of many I seem unable to remove a stain from. Am I feeding F the wrong food, or am I using the wrong washing machine setting?! Thankfully pinterest had a few ideas for covering them like this one.
p.s- here’s another good pinterest idea for stained baby clothes: a memory quilt!
