Craft: Recycled "New" Outfits

Look what mamma made! I made these outfits for my two daughters. The older one is from my dad's old shirt with some denim curtains that were given to me, then I appliquéd a heart on an old t shirt. The little one had put a hole in her knees of her jeans, so I took off the legs, added a skirt to the bottom, then made a top to match the fabric. I used another of my dad's old shirts. Both my girls loved their new clothes, and of course grandad was very proud of the recycling.

What a great idea! I thought that my mom was the only one who cut down men's shirts to make dresses for me when I was a child. Very creative.
