Welcome to Pinned It, Did it Monday. Every Monday, I share some of the things I’ve actually done from Pinterest this week. My crafts have been nothing new this week as I’m finishing up some baby shower gifts for tonight. But today, I bring you my first pin from my blog. Meaning, I blogged this, and then pinned it! Haha. Kinda cheating on actually doing some of the other things I’ve pinned. But oh well. Maybe next week I’ll actually get back on the ball for this post.We got a batch of clothes from friends and there was this cute pair of pajamas. They looked brand new. . .until you got down to the feet. Little Vincent wore those soles hard. But I didn’t want to throw them away as they literally were in perfect shape. So here’s what I did.
Step 1: take a seam ripper, turn the foot part inside out, and slowly rip the seam out. This may have been the longest part of this whole thing.Step 2: once the bottom of the feet are separated, use them as a pattern to cut out 2 new bottoms. I used fleece just because I had it on hand.Step 3: Carefully pin the new bottoms to the outside of the foot seams. The yellow bottoms are actually a bit smaller than the actual hole. This will make more room for their little feet. So just pin evenly all the way around.Step 4: I used a zig-zag stitch all the way around the oval.Repeat with other foot:Step 5: Turn inside out and admire your new pajamas!Optional Step 6: The original feet had grippers on them. Fleece can be a little slippery, so after I was done, I decided to add my own “grippers.” I grabbed a bottle of puffy paint and did a little decorating. After this dried overnight, it worked perfectly to add a little traction to Owen’s feet.And there you have it, a way to extend the life of those pajamas a little longer. Because we all know they grow like weeds and anytime I can save a little money on his wardrobe, I'll do it. Or let me know if I can fix any of your kiddo’s pjs. :)
