New spin on old attire!

I love this shirt so much I bought the boys 4 of them last year in different colors.
Now they have grown and the shirts are too short on them.

The boys love these comfy jeans. They are just now that soft jean texture but they are too short for them, they hit mid ankle now. All of us were sad to see these favorites depart but then I decided we could transform them into these:

Did you catch what we did? First , we cut the jeans off into shorts and added the emblem from the shirt to the shorts over the biggest hole in the jeans. Next we cut the bottom of the shirt off  and added it to the bottom of each leg of the shorts.
 Because I am so addicted to freezer stenciling now, we took the design of the emblem and made tshirts to match it. Everybody is happy because some much loved clothing is hanging around a little longer. Oh yeah, it also helps stretch the clothing budget, lol!
 I think that is what DH loved the most!

These are the other emblems I cut off some old shirts that we are planning on reusing
soon. Maybe I can finish them up this weekend.........

I am linking up to these cool parties.
