Cut offs

It's 7:30 here right now that means I have 30 mins to type this up before I have to get in the shower to go to college...here is a mini tutorial on how I made these cut offs for Sora (we will be doing a photo shoot later today after school :o)...


grab your material that you are using, this is an old curtain (lots more project's i've already started with the rest of this material)


Measure your child and cut two pieces the same size


Sew up till you get to the crotch and stop they should look like this so far (not sewn together)



Pin sew the crotch together, then you can see there are two loops already sewn on so what i did was took that first bigger loop folded it under....


like so and sew around leaving a space to pull your elastic through


now after you put your elastic through you have a cute little ruffle going around the top


now pin the bottoms up and sew


I wanted too add a little something more so I added an appliqué pocket


Pictures will be added today of what they look like on, there super cute and look comfy..I LOVE up-cycle..

Peace Love and Cupcakes
Amanda

Update here are two pictures Sora let me take
