Making stuff for free is one of my favourite things!
Add my new found passion for patchwork and the upcycling possibilities are endless...
The idea for these trousers came from these patchwork shorts.
I cut out loads of 10cm squares from old t-shirts - ones with stains, holes etc. I just used the good parts!!
Then I used the overlocking stitch on my sewing machine to make 2 pieces of fabric. I drew around a pair of pyjama bottoms to get the pattern.
Why did nobody tell me making trousers was so easy?
Just 2 pieces, 3 seams and a channel for some elastic :)
Poppy loves them; I only asked her to try them on and she won't take them back off!
(And I like them; they remind me of a pair I had when I was a student.)
