Recycled Big Brother Pants

My Little Business Man
With 5 kids, finding new ways to reuse expensive clothing is important! So My older son grew out of these "Tommy Hilfiger" pants And I found a way to recycle them for baby!
Taking the legs of the pants I traced the leg of a folded pair of baby brother pant. I also used the original hem of the pants.
Before sewing the pant legs together I added the two layers of "knee pads". I don't have an embroidery machine so I used a zigzag stitch! If I could do it again, I would make the stitches smaller. So I could ensure there wouldn't be any raw edges that come undone!
I like the brand of the pants so I cut the emblem from the back of the pants and sewed it on to the the lower ankle!
As for the Tie I just grabbed a onesie and cut 2 pieces. One for the "knot" of the tie and one for "body". And again I zig zag the raw edges. What I would do differently next time is put the tie on a long sleeve shirt, with the weather, the onesie alone is to light to wear!
