Baby leggings. My baby can have one in every single color and every single pattern. I love them.
I’m pretty sure she loves this baby leggings tutorial because they are so comfortable and perfect for being a busy body. They are great for warmth in the winter and protection from the sun in the summer.

what is upcycling?
Upcycling is to reuse material to create something better than the original. I usually use this to describe when I’m sewing adult clothing into clothing for children or I’m sewing clothing into an accessory or house item. I love to upcycle so much!
Upcycling saves time, saves money, saves the environment, and saves memories.
Save time by reusing details from the original shirt. Save money by using something you already have.
Save the environment by keeping t-shirts out of the landfill. Save memories by reusing a favorite adult t-shirt for your toddler or child.
