When I first showed them to him he thought I made them from scratch, lol! He had a few pairs of pants that he either got too tall for or got holes in that I was just going to get rid of until I saw that tutorial...
so I pulled out my scissors and double needle..
now my boy has 3 new pairs of shorts! Lol, he wanted to look tough with his basketball :)
I have a few other ideas for projects for him too, my first try at making shorts from scratch needs some adjusting (and better fabric choices, right, Jeff, lol) and a few t-shirt refashions I haven't gotten to yet.
Speaking of t-shirt refashions...
My daughter has been wanting a Star Wars t-shirt and I'd seen this tutorial a while ago so I gave it a shot. It literally took me 15 minutes and she loves it!
After these easy upcycles turned out so well I'm hunting for some more ideas to repurpose their outgrown clothes-especially because, at their age, they often outgrow things they've barely worn.
