3 shrunken sweaters - Project 3

This is also a fairly easy project. I used the sleeves from the wine wool sweater to make a pair of wool pants for my son. I used a pair of his existing pants as a guide (roughly). I measure the side length of the pants and cut the sleeves accordingly. Then I measure the crotch length of the existing pants and cut the seamed edge of the sleeves to that length. The last step is to sew the 2 pieces together and add an elastic! Quick and simple way to create a pair of toddler/baby pants!

There are lots of tutorials on how to make a pair of kids pants from sweater sleeves. This one from the Sewing Dork is pretty good!
