I have been on a bit of a pajama kick lately, what can I say – I just love making my kids matching pajama bottoms. And when I came across a super cute XXL butterfly cotton T Shirt, I knew I was in for another upcycle.
This time I got a bit creative with them though.
You see, I also happen to be a complete clearance items addict. Give me a basket filled with things on ‘clearance’, and I will sort my way through that bad boy until I get to the bottom. What that leaves me with though is a bunch of random notions that sit around collecting dust. Such as this hot pink lace. I bought it ages ago, and never really quite knew what to do with it.
It was bit hard and stiff to use on regular clothing, and I am not much into making things for the home. So there it sat.
These shorts have become a fast favorite in our house, they are just so darned comfy!
Want to add some lace or other notion into a regular old pair of shorts you are making? Here’s how I did it…
(Sorry in advance for the washed out photos…if I was thinking properly, I would have put the shorts on a different color background! Doh!)
And continue sewing your shorts together as you normally would!
They are never this cute together! HA! Glad I happened to capture it on film for the 5 minutes that it lasted…
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
