My husband went to throw away his irreparable pj pants. I snagged them quickly. He rolled his eyes at me. I cut them apart and stitched them into a fantastic pair of pj pants for this awesome 9 year old. They are his new favorite pants now. (I also made him that wool vest out of an old skirt, link here .) My dear husband can roll his eyes all he wants, I'll just carry on my ploy of turning trash into treasures.
