Here is an old one from the archives of my old blog for Transformation Tuesday, where I walk you through the entire transformation process for how I converted these toddler pants into some awesome monster cuties!
First, I cut off the hem and elastic waist band. Set the elastic to the side to give to a friend who uses it, and the hems I tossed in the “to dice” pile.
Then I fold the fabric in half and cut out two little monster bodies, then I unfold the material and cut out one more from one of the legs.
Next, I cut out little rectangle limbs from the remaining fabric.
Ta-da! One pair of tiny pants = enough fabric for three stuffed monsters!
Instead of throwing away the remaining scraps…
I diced them up into super tiny bits to use for stuffing!
And BAM! That is what turning textile discards into monsters looks like, step by step! Not a single bit of material from my monsters goes into landfills thanks to this process.
Here is the monsters I made from those little pants:
