Warm and woolly for only £1

3:48 pm

I ran up these trousers today for Sid, they are upcycled from a wool dressing gown I bought in a charity shop for a whole £1.
Upcycled trousers
I made use of the pockets by cutting out each back panel to include them, and I added a cute lamington lane label just to finish them off.

And remembered a label
These should keep him cosy when we go to Cornwall in a weeks time. They have lots of growing room too, so will see him through a couple of winters.
I used the same pattern as for these trousers,but with a few adjustments.
I'll post modelled pics when he wears them, the light is already too poor here for good pics.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. These are brilliant! How inspiring. Love the funky label! x

  2. What a great way of repurposing old for new. I have a stack of skirts and tops that need renewing.

  4. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see a pic of him wearing them. I love the term "upcycled."

    BTW - have you read Amanda Soule's blog SouleMama? I think you'd love it if you haven't yet discovered her.

  5. Karen, hi, yes I do usually read Amanda's blog, though lately not so much.
