Recycle Kid’s Outgrown Clothes Into Play Pillows

Ever catch your child running around in a way too tight shirt that you know they dug out of the “too small” bin in the basement?  They promptly tell you that the shirt fits just fine even though their belly is sticking out, and they can bearly fit their arms into the sleeves.  You know those favorite shirts that they just can’t seem to get enough of!  Here is a way that I have discovered to make those favorite shirts last just a little bit longer.  Instead of packing them away or donating the kid’s favorite outgrown clothes I love to make them into little pillows...

Sew Simple Matching Jersey Dresses For A Little Girl And Her Doll

A great garage sale find, and a clearanced yard of fun jersey fabric inspired this super easy sewing project.  When my little lady scored a Cabbage patch Doll for $ 0.75 at a garage sale that needed some clothes, I decided to make not only one for her new dolly, but one for her that matched!  She loves that she can match her new baby, and they couldn’t be a cuter pair. We were doing a little garage saleing this summer when my little girl spotted two vintage Cabbage Patch Dolls.  There were two of them at this particular sale.  One had clothes and a diaper and there was another that...
