Baby sack from an old t-shirt

 I saw this on pinterest and had an old shirt that I knew I wanted to do it with. It was a Tinkerbell shirt that was a little small for me. What I did first was lay the shirt down and take an already made sleep sack and lay it on top.

I cut up the sides, leaving a seam allowance, up to the arm pit. I wanted to do a raglan sleeve and not a set in, so I cut up to the neck diagonally. Then I folded it over in half and trace-cut the same as the other side.

I used another t-shirt for the sleeves, so lay the made sleeves on top and trace-cut around leaving seam allowances. I lined it up to the Tinkerbell shirt to get the diagonal cut right.  

Make sure you cut the point off so it doesn't stick out. It needs a neck.

I wanted the fold over sleeves, so at first I cut a peice of fabric the whole width of the wrist, but that didn't work. Make sure you only sew this little pocked on half of the sleeve, not all the way around.

Sew the sleeves to the front and back on both sides.

This is what it looks like after the sleeves are attatched at the armpit. Then you need to sew up the sides of the sack and continue down the sleeve.

I added ruffles on the wrists and then used the exsisting hem to threaad elastic through. I just tightened it the same as the already finished sack. Cute right? I think I will make a hat to match!
