Ben Ten

Ok, for those of you who don't have young boys (or ones who have nice, serene boys who don't like Ben Ten) this is Ben Ten. He is a superhero who can change into an alien. I blame DH who gets him the DVD's.

The top is made from an old white tee of mine and a black one that Adam and I picked out from the charity shop especially for this project. I chopped off the black neck and arm bias tape from the black tee, cut a strip for the front, bish bash bosh..Ben Ten tee! He was chuffed to bits with it as you can see. He turned into Ben Ten in front of my eyes.
The pants I made from some jogging pant material which has been in my stash since I first started sewing. It's not my favourite fabric as the quality is not too great. I wont buy it again, I'll just chop up old joggers :) The pants still need pockets, and a label in the back to stop him putting them on backwards.


  1. this is terrific- I'm inspired to make a ben ten tee for my own little ben ten! Thanks for the idea!

  2. No worries :) he is so pleased with it. I'd love to see a pic if you get around to doing one
