    This is great!! What a great way to “refresh” and reuse an otherwise get-rid-of item. Thanks for your creativity and sharing!

    I shall have a go at this — I never throw away hubbies old shirts anyway as fabric is useful for patchwork/applique as it well washed and soft.

      I am so glad you like it!
      As a matter of fact I do the same with any piece of clothing that we and the children overgrow.

      Hey shaunda, I posted an elaborate reply to your wall.
      The elastic I used is 4 mm wide.
