more upcycling - pjs to lunch bag!

my boy's glow in the dark skeleton pajamas are sadly outgrown!
i've been "trying" to take them to the charity shop
but i just couldn't do it
so inspired by MeridianAriel
i did this instead!

no it's not a ribcage vest
although that would be cool!

after sewing along the bottom edge
{please ignore the awful stitching
me and my machine have a love/hate relationship
mostly based on pure spitting hatred}

i slightly shaped the bottom
and i also hemmed the other edges.

and now my son has a new school lunch bag!
i was inspired by this tutorial
by MeridianAriel

she just got a fancy new sewing machine for her birthday
so watch out for other new sewing projects on her blog :o)
