I already showed you the leopard pair I made from a Target skirt and ever since then I became addicted! I went on the search for more skirts but came up empty handed. I decided to get some adult leggings instead and they worked just as easily. If you search stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe you should hit the jackpot!
This pair was made from a Target skirt [and yes, I know the seams are lacking any type of straight line, but you can't tell a bit once they're on!]:
Point proven...here's Theo rocking his Mexican serape blanket inspired leggings!
Of course now I'm scouring the internet for more leggings or skirts that I can turn into leggings for baby boy! I want to make some for friends' babies, too. Basically anyone that wants them I want to make them. It's my new hobby. :-)
But let's get a few things straight: I'm not the world's best seamstress nor do I claim to have the "5 minute" part down pat. But I do enjoy this little sewing endeavor and I even want to make a quilt!
You read that right.
I'm in shock, too. In fact, I absolutely know I'm in over my head. But that's ok. I need something to let my creativity flow.
This is my inspiration and lucky for me she has a step-by-step tutorial on her blog.

I do know that I can buy this same quilt on Etsy and probably save me loads of time and hassle but I desperately want to prove to myself that I can do it and I want Theron to have this made from me.
It will be from my heart. All of its imperfectness and love from his momma. I can do it. Ok, I hope I can do it.
I can't wait to get started. Like, I'm headed to Jo-Anns this weekend to buy my supplies. My sewing machine and I are either going to be great friends or arch enemies. Only time will tell.
Oh brother---what have I gotten myself into? Hahaha.
Have a sweet little weekend, friends.
