wonderfully handmade - from drab to fab


Photobucket


2 Hearts Tee

it always make me a bit emotional when Nicholas and Sasha outgrow their clothes. there are so many memories tied to each outfit and to every piece. i don't mind giving away the stuff that's outgrown to friends and family but i usually reserve only the pieces that are in good shape for hand me downs. the clothing that's descent, i donate to the salvation army. and then i am always left with some articles that may technically fit, but are way to soiled and grimy for any child to wear. last time i cleaned out Sasha's closet there were three shirts that all had prominent stains or holes. each one was unwearable but still quite sentimental. so i decided to use the material from these shirts and turn a plain drab tee into a fabulous piece for Sasha to wear. oh, and a cute heart necklace to compliment the tee which she refused to wear ;). click here for a quick tutorial.

  1. As a recipient of some of those old clothes, I want to say we are really thankful. You have excellent taste. And I love what you did with this shirt. That is fabulous. The whole outfit is very cute. Not only can you put pieces together but i love when you can design from scratch.
