Upcycled Longies

February 22, 2011

My friends,  I have a new obsession…

Sewing longies from cast-off men’s woolen sweaters!  This is such a ridiculously quick and gratifying project!  I sewed both these pairs in about an hour on Sunday afternoon, all during the span of naptime.  They don’t require any formal measuring, pressing, or pattern tracing.  Now that I’ve done it, I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to give this a try!

There are tutorials all over the interweb on how to create longies from old wool sweaters.  The one I followed can be found here.

Happy CDing!
