Harvest Buttons and Material from Old Clothes

Save your ripped pants and shirts, then "harvest" the buttons. You never know when you will need buttons. You can also save parts of the fabric and make clothes for an infant. A pant leg turned upside down (or two legs sewn together) can make a cute "pillowcase dress" for a baby girl. All you need is a little ribbon. You can also use extra fabric from elsewhere to create a jumper dress. Save drawstrings to use on bags for cart covers or as ribbon on the pillowcase dresses.

What is a pillow case dress? Is there a pattern you can buy for them? I have tons of fabric to use up.

Thanks so much.

You can also entertain kids on a rainy day - let them string buttons and make necklaces and things. They love it!
