clothing transformation

This week I was sorting through clothes to store and hand-down to friends. Kaya is growing so quickly and always outgrowing her things. I was looking at Zander's clothes and thought what a shame she can't wear his. (Because I do want her clothes to look girly, just a quirk of mine).




As I folded up these overalls and shirt, I suddenly had a brilliant plan! I could make them girly with my stitching skills! So Friday and Saturday night I sat on the couch, watched too many cheesy Lifetime movies, and created this...







I can't wait to get into Zander's old clothes again to see what I can transform!!!

Crafty, I am SO jealous! LOVE what you did with the overalls, especially the "Love, Mommy" part. You should totally sell this stuff - and if you do, let me know and I'll put a link on my blog.

It was handstitched! I love doing hand needlework.

Ryd, It is my DREAM to one day sell things like this. It may be a year or two down the road, but I will definitely let you know when I do!

The woman who made millions selling silly jibbitz to Crocs started out very small. My thought: start small, dream big, win bigger. You can do it! (And let me know and I'll be happy to post a link).
