The title should be a Daddy’s Cargo Pants transform in to a Toddler Skirt and Mommy Messenger Bag….but it is too long for something so simple and short. This is an article about how to make a Toddler Skirt or Recycle old pants in to something new. If you are interested in a Messenger Bag, you could found instructions here.
Actually this is so simple project that I even don’t know should I publish it or not, but if you did do a messenger bag project, then you didn’t use all the pants fabric, so I decided for a new project made from that scraps and I also did use some new fabric, just to contrast and because I already didn’t have enough pants fabric. The fabric was nice, and I like the pocket detail on them so I use two for toddler skirts, but basically all I did make is a patchwork from two different fabrics. Then I did cut the simple shape and you have it….cleaner closet (because you use old fabric), and one more eco friendly project….and most important new dress for happy toddler. But when I did finish I did get the idea, that something like that I could do even for myself; the bigger version for the next time? Ok, at the end, this is just one more recycle project and so simple that you don’t need instructions, but here they are just for inspiration.
Do you like project like that? I know too simple tutorial….I’m not sure, but I think I will also play a little more with a free motion stitching and maybe I will make a red fabric flower for it, just because. But for now I need to wait for my kid to come back from a kindergarten. Hope she will like it. But my closed is cleaner for one unfinished project, yey….happy mom.
