repurposed!

I just stumbled across this blog the other day and I had to marvel at the creativity. Her name is Disney. Her blog is Ruffles and Stuff. She sews and repurposes old clothes for her oh-so-cute little girl. Not only does she show off her handywork, but she posts tutorials too. So generous! Because of her, I jumped on the repurposing bandwagon.

I had this old knit short sleeved hoody that never quite fit right. Now, it's a ruffled skirt for my little one. She looks so sweet in it. You'd see a picture of her in it now, but she's sleeping, and that's even more sweet. sorry. I'm not about to wake her up for a photo shoot. Sweet, but sassy, that little one. Maybe later today.

Here's the only picture I could find of me wearing the shirt. Cheesy, I know. Don't mind the model here.

And here's the after.


C'mon now, I know you want to jump on the bandwagon too. Search your closets. you know you have things in there that you'll never wear. Bust out your sewing maching and put on your creativity cap. I'd love to see what you can come up with!


If you have another minute, link up with the DIY Show Off to show off your blog! She's having a party!

UPDATE:
by golly, she woke up just in time for a little photo op.

Like I said. . . . sassy.


"Mother, I will only be your performing monkey if you sing to me."

and sing I did.

It doesn't take much.

Here's the sweet.
