DIY – A Tee Shirt to Panties Upcycle – Stark Raving Mad!

in DIY / Tutorials, Family, General

I am totally losing it! ME! The one who said, “crafts schmafts“.

underwear from old t-shirt
I made these panties for Georgia out of Sam’s old t-hirt.

For some reason this made Sam, scream and blush. The boy is just too easy to embarrass. I guess the thought of his old t-shirt wrapped around his sister’s hiney was just too much to take. MEN!

I’d show you how I made them (next time), but Martha is on in 5 minutes. Gotta run! (oh the shame … I need flogged!)

I hope my old drinking buddies don’t read this!

    Very creative. I think he will forget about the shorts once being his shirt at some point. Or at least not care anymore.

    P.S. It’s adorable!!

  • Scrapbooking Ideas April 2, 2009, 2:28 pm

    Such a resourceful gal you are! ;) It’s funny that your boy is embarrassed – it isn’t as if she’ll be wearing them on the *outside*!


  • Kids Birthday Cakes April 3, 2009, 3:45 pm

    This is too cute but I think my older boys would also be a little squeamish if I made their old shirts into panties for their baby sister – especially since she’s still potty training :)

  • kategvt April 5, 2009, 6:27 am

  • antof9 April 13, 2009, 9:41 pm

    Great idea for reusing a scrap t-shirt! I’ve made scarves and bandannas from old t-shirts but nothing ever this advanced!

    I have observed that clever real estate agents almost everywhere are warming up to FSBO Marketing and advertising. They are recognizing that it’s in addition to placing a sign post in the front yard. It’s really about building connections with these retailers who at some time will become buyers. So, while you give your time and energy to supporting these retailers go it alone — the “Law involving Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.
