Recycle a t-shirt into a baby shirt

It’s so close to summer. My Elijah has been proving to be a terror on his wardrobe. This child wants to play hard so I need to make him some clothes that won’t break my heart if he ruins them.


My inner “freak out” is usually associated with expensive clothing, or clothes that take me a while to make. So I am combating that by making him shorts and cut offs out of t-shirts! In fact, I found a new way to whip out my baby cut off t-shirt even faster by recycling the binding of the existing t-shirt. I even made a video for you. 🙂


**Please know that my tutorial in the baby cut off tank top pattern DOES show you how to properly attach binding to the neckline, as well as finish any edges. This video is simply a pattern adaption to whip out my sweetheart some play clothes.
