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 that they can use for play. They are perfect for dolly cribs or for their favorite stuffed animals to use in their beds. They get to see their favorite shirt everyday and play with it too.
Here is a fun little craft to make your little girl’s holiday extra special! What little lady wouldn’t love a comfy little red dress with a sparkly Santa adorning the front? This comfortable pillowcase style dress was fashioned from an unworn t-shirt in just a few simple steps. The small amount of time that it took me to make this was well worth the effort because my little lady wants to wear it every day! Skip the store bought kids clothes and hit the clearanced out holiday shirts so you can refashion them yourself! Easy, inexpensive, and super cute too. A comfy, fun little dress for any holiday party.
Ever go through your closet and keep things because you like them, knowing full well you will never wear them again? Such was the case with a ruffled white tank top in my closet, and after a couple years of saving it for no reason I decided that if I liked it so much, why not make it into something I would really use and enjoy on a daily basis. Out came a matching pair of white ruffled pillows.
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.
