First of all, Happy New Year everyone!
The holidays are over and now I can get caught up on some posts that I have been so excited to share. Though the holidays were super busy, we were able to enjoy some much-needed family time and finally got some good pictures of the kids together!
I also got the sewing machine up and running, so I have been able to start on some projects I have been dying to do.
Number one on the list was to make a shrug that I had pinned on Pinterest a while back. We are fortunate enough to get a few hand me downs on occasion, and sometimes they have a few flaws, maybe a stain here or there? But I found this tutorial from Make It and Love It and was inspired to repurpose this t-shirt!
Yep, I had all of the necessary tools to get started! iPad with the tutorial handy, TV remote, seam ripper and other miscellaneous sewing supplies.
With a few modifications, I came up with this as a final result!
And while I had Skylar model the shrug, the other kids joined in on the photo shoot too…
Too cute 🙂
Moral of this story: Think twice before you donate or throw out clothes. Be creative and you can probably repurpose a clothing item too!
