Step one: Clean your closet, your kids closet, your neighbors closet and donate whatever is still wearable. What's not - gather up and remove any zippers, buttons or embellishments that you might find use for in other projects. Then start imagining the cuts you can make. The bottom of pant legs and the ends of sleeves are a great place to start and will require just a couple straight seams. I don't really like to sew so the fewer stitches, the better!
This is the bottom of a pajama pant leg that already has a nice seam in it. All you need to do is snip a piece of the seam and thread your drawstring through - so much easier!
Okay, let's head back over to our animal print bag and finish off the bottom.
