A pair of baby/toddler crawling trousers made from sleeves of a man’s shirt.
For me, finding sewing projects for boys is be tricky.
Somehow most children’s sewing patterns seem to be for girls (why!?), and most of the boys patterns I find never seem quite right to me – they are either too ‘twee’ or too ‘little-man-cargo-pants’.*
This, however, is a quick, easy and satisfying project and is great for little boys. I’ve made trousers this way a few times now and I’m always pleased with how they turn out… and I’m always left wanting to make more!
More about the project on my blog here: http://skybluegrey.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/upcycled-baby-trousers.html
*The exception to this is Japanese pattern books, but that’s a story for another day.
One large cotton men’s second hand shirt bought from a charity shop.
