I'm submitting this for my sister. Suddenly she found herself babysitting her 5 year old granddaughter and needed some activities to keep her occupied. I told her about a craft I had seen here making a beach bag out of old tank tops.
She cleaned out her closet and dusted off the sewing machine and came up with a skirt for the little one made of old jeans and t-shirts. She drew squares on the shirt and jeans and let her help cut it out and very quickly came up with the new outfit. Nothing fancy, but for play it is terrific, and Faith had a ball learning to sew, she's a big girl now.
