I just finished these capris for the kids made out of bandannas! I got the idea here from Martha Stewart's site although I didn't follow the directions. My excitement of sewing something without a pattern far outweighs the imperfections! And my sweet kids are always so happy to get anything I make them. I love that! It's fuel to keep me making more.
These were so incredibly easy. Each pair is made out of two bandannas (in these parts I think the cheapest place to buy bandannas is Hobby Lobby...only $1 each and lots of colors to choose from). I chose to do elastic waists...easier for the kids and more comfortable. I didn't have to do any finishing on the bottom legs of Joshua's, but for Emma Grace I chose to add a little lace. You know, girls need lace.
The thing I love most about these is the versatility. They can be worn for play, lounging around the house, or bedtime pajamas!
Martha has some more ideas on her site for clothing made out of bandannas. They're already on my sewing list!
