I love men’s shirts for making toddler shorts – they seem to wear beautifully, and the stripes and checks look wonderful on little boys
So great ideas! I have tons of my husband’s old shirts at home and up-cycling them sounds better than overfilling some garbage container. The polka-dot baby dress is so cute! Thank you for these ideas!
