Make Baby Clothes Cheap: DIY Baby Jeans

Here's a great way to get inexpensive baby clothes and recycle your old and unwanted clothes. I made this pair of baby jeans for my daughter using an old pair of jeans that I was getting ready to give to the good will or throw away. The best part about it is that you do not need to hem the bottom of the legs since you can easily use the hem that is already sewn into your jeans. Plus the hem will look great!
Use the pattern on my baby clothes pattern for pants page. Print the pattern out. A couple of the pages will need to be taped together to form the full pattern. You may also want to trim an inch or two off of the bottom since you will not necessarily have to sew the bottom hem. The pattern is sized for a baby around 12 months old. You can easily reduce the size on a copy machine to fit your baby whether it be a bit smaller or bigger.

You can make baby clothes cheap, by using just about any kind of old clothing you have laying around. An old dress, old shirts or t-shirts, or go the same route I did and make some baby jeans out of your old denim jeans.

You can even jazz them up a bit by using some of the other techniques I show on the site. Use fuse-able webbing to add a cute fabric accent to the bottom cuff of the pant, or to make a cute shape somewhere on the leg of the pants. Customize them with fabric paint or even some iron-on paper. You could even add some pockets to the legs or back side. Use all of these ideas to make your own stylish and funky baby clothes.
