Cheri at http://www.iammommahearmeroar.net/, is a very creative young mother with 2 boys and a little girl on the way. Recently she did a tutorial on how to make shorts for her boys out of a t-shirt. Brilliant I thought. I can do that. I went through my shirt drawer and pulled out a few shirts that were beginning to show wear. Then I borrowed my 4 year old grandson’s pajamas to create the pattern. This is how I did it.
Paper (I taped two 8.5 inch x 11inch pieces together)
Safety pin (not shown)
Pants or shorts (an elastic waist band is best to make the pattern from)
1 inch wide non-roll elastic (20 inches for this boy’s waist)
