More boy's PJs from a man's polo shirt - this time with a guitar!


My 8 year-old needed new summer PJs too, so I grabbed another of hubby's old polo shirts from work and got cracking with the method I used recently to refashion a polo into pyjamas.

This time the polo was black with a circular grey design on the bottom right. I incorporated this design into a guitar applique by adding blue lycra and white cotton and stitching guitar strings and knobs over them with free motion sewing. The top was lengthened with the stripe of blue fabric at the chest and I free-sewed 'I'm with the band' across the front and 'Rock n Roll' on the back. 

My little rocker was stoked!!







I would love to see your creations. You can upload them to my Flickr group, or my Facebook page.

  3. Hi Megan

    I was just wondering if you've seen my clothes upcycling page with the linky there?
    I would love if you came and linked this project there too (and any other upcycles you've done too). It has a long term linky, so your project would stay there for more than just the week of a usual linky. We have over 160 projects linked up now – some fantastic ideas.
    Do come and take a look!
