We all have these old pants sitting around, the kind with the roll up bottom hem…well, why not upcycle them into something much cuter for your child! I give you Upcycled Capri Overalls.

I love turning something old into something new, giving it new life while saving my wallet and the environment, all in one fell swoop.

Overalls like these are so handy because they are perfect for Spring, and when the temperatures start to rise you can still roll the bottom of them up turning them into shorts for Summer!

Another great thing about those old pants, is they usually have tons of accessories sewn on that you can reuse on your overalls…
