Projects and Ideas- NO SEW old cotton t-shirt into a cute toddler skirt
I really needed to figure out a way to use all the t-shirt tops left over from making my upcycled t-shirt scarves (www.etsy.com/shop/utilitarianmom) and came up with this. PERFECT for 1-3 year olds in men's sizes large to XXL, but obviously the waist size will vary with the neck size of the shirt. Be sure to pick one without any logos or writing- they don't turn out as well. You can easily add elastic to the neck/waist if you want, but you probably won't need it if you put them on over onesies (and then you don't have to worry about diaper covers or bloomers!
Have fun with this one and feel free to send me pics of your creations and variations (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm excited to see what people will come up with- bleach prints, tie dye, permanent marker designs- anything is possible!
