Shorty come home.

I made shorts for Hendrix! I wish I had tried this much sooner because I would not have bought him any new pairs this summer. It was easy witthis tutorial.  
I made them from an old men's button up I bought at a thrift store a while back. Ugly prints on men's shirts= very cuttoddler shorts. 

The pocket from the front of the shirt conveniently becomes a back pocketThis shirt only had one pocketbut with a two pocket shirt, you could have them on both sides. 

I made a couple mistakes, but I couldn't believe how cutthey turned out! I think I will be making his every pair of shorts until he decides he is too cool for elastic waistThat's still cool in high school right?  


  1. Nice handiwork! He's a cutie pie!

  2. Those are darling! I love the bright colors.

  3. They look great! I hope I never have to buy clothes, people keep passing more clothes our way for the little boy!! YES!

  4. Those are so cute on that baby who knows how to say Bubbles. I would like those for me , now that I'm entering the elastic waist shorts stage of my life for the second time.

  5. He is soooo cute & those shorts are amazing, great job:)
