Leggings are super fun and cute to sew up! To make these pairs of pajama leggings, I used this pattern from Sew Adollable. I lengthened the legs to be ankle length, as well as cut a little bit more to be higher on the waist. I made both of these pairs from human t-shirts. The orange pair is a bit more of a stiff knit than the blue striped which are softer and stretchier.
I decided I would shoot pictures of and post some graphic tees that I haven’t blogged about yet!
The first is this Charlie Brown raglan t-shirt upcycled from a regular long sleeve t-shirt. I used the Pixie Faire Baseball Tee pattern which I got for free on a previous Freebie Friday. It’s Freebie Friday today over at Pixie Faire, and the free pattern today is the Schoolgirl Dress by Melody Valerie Couture. I thought using the baseball t-shirt pattern would go well with the fact that Charlie Brown (on the shirt) is wearing his baseball cap.
One of the great things about upcycling old t-shirts is the graphics printed onto the fabric! I enjoy reusing graphics on human t-shirts to give my dolls something fun to wear. This Mickey t-shirt is one such project! The pattern I used was the free Pixie Faire Trendy T-shirt pattern.
This Toy Story t-shirt is also upcycled. I made it from the same human shirt as this Buzz Lightyear Tee I posted previously. I used this pattern from Simply Sweet and Sewn. This t-shirt goes together a little easier than the Pixie Faire tee, because the sleeves and the main pieces are already attached instead of cut separately. The longer sleeved t-shirt can be worn by a boy too!
