A dress from a shirt!

After I used parts of a shirt to cut elbow patches, I used the rest to make this cute dress/tunic for my granddaughter. The idea came from MADE. That girl is creative!

This shirt was a man's Fitted 16.  After shirring, it fits a 2-year-old!


This girl looks so cute in her LBD!

A Gift for a Friend

The idea for this centerpiece came just in time from Eat.Sleep.Make. It's a Mother's Day gift  for a dear friend.
