Wardrobe Wednesday: Lane's New Upcycled Tees

Way back in September, I made some super cute upcycled tees for Lane out of all sorts of old clothes. People really reacted to these t-shirts. Lane got tons of compliments about how cute and original she was (not to mention earth conscious! ... well at least her mommy is earth conscious - she's just cute!)

So when we realized that most of her tops were getting too small, I decided to make her a couple more of these fun upcycled creations.

The first one has my old pajama top for the body. Some of you may recognize it because I wore it almost every evening while living in residence at the university. Then there is the Winnie The Pooh applique that I cut off of the very cute newborn sweater that my friend Jen gave to Lane before she was even born. The bottom and neckline are from Terry's white t-shirt. That man can't keep a white t-shirt to save his life. I had to cut around a rather large coffee stain to get the fabric needed hehehe And the sleeves are from a onesie that used to fit a much smaller Laney.

The next is a little green t-shirt made from another one of my pajama tops. With the rest of Terry's white t-shirt for the neckline and bottom. The sleeves are from a crazy pair of zippered pajamas that Lane had when she was a few months old. Peace baby! And I cut the kitty applique off of a yellow pair of baby jammies that both kids have outgrown. Super cute!

So what do you think? Do they look too pieced together? Sometimes I wonder if people are thinking that I'm dressing my kids in rags because I patchwork so much stuff together. Upcycling seems to be an upcoming trend, so I bet there will be tons of other children wearing these types of fashions in the next few years. Maybe we're just trendy?

Some people have asked if I would make them one of these one of a kind creations for their children. Do you think I should make a few varieties and post them up in the shop? (You can check out the other 3 tess I made for Lane at this link). Lane could always wear them if they don't get a good response... but I'd like to have a bit of a plan before I start the upcycled t-shirt making factory :P
