Refash: Pajamas into Pockets and a Scarf

By Marisa Glied

For today’s refashion I took an old pair of pajama pants and made a scarf. But that is not all! I also used some of the pajama material to make pockets for a plain sweater I had recently thrifted!

Here it is! A very plain grey cardigan.


Annnd here they are, the old pajama pants.

I used an old pocket that I took off a men’s dress shirt as a template for my new pockets.

I folded over the top of my pockets and stitched that in place.

For my scarf: I trimmed the legs of the pajama pants into 4 rectangles.

I then placed 2 rectangles on top of one another and folded them longwise and sewed that. Then sewed each rectangle pair together to make one long piece of fabric.

I folded the fabric so the ends were together. I sewed them up and made a very long infinity scarf!

Lastly, I pinned the pockets to the front of the cardigan! Stitched them on leaving the tops open, of course!

Here we have it! A new infinity scarf and a cardigan with pockets!

Happy Refashioning!!!


Hi there! Welcome to my little blog! My name is Marisa, phonetically that’s Marie-sa! My goal is to change the way you look at outdated clothes by making you think outside the stitch! I am a dental hygienist by trade but that leaves me longing to show my creative side and having something more fashionable to wear than scrubs! I have always been interested in fashion and for years I have been dabbling in creating my own clothes. Now is the time to seriously get into refashioning and encourage you to do the same! I hope this little blog of mine inspires you not to pass up those oversized unsightly pieces of clothing but to transform them into something beautiful! Happy Refashioning!
