Bonnie's daughter wanted to cheer on her brother's football team on a hot day, but her only piece of school spirit was a baggy, thick boy's t-shirt. Not to worry--Bonnie quickly (like, in 15 minutes) refashioned the shirt into a stylish, breathable pillowcase top. At Uncommon Designs, she's sharing this "great way for you soccer, baseball, and football girls to lighten up those heavy shirts and still show your team spirit!"
Want to learn how to turn a man's polo shirt into an adorable skirt for a little girl, without ANY sewing? Jamie from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom started this project with a green and white striped polo shirt.
The lovely Nicole from The Felted Fox saw some amazing African print sweatshirts while browsing Pinterest. As she says, "I already owned a plain grey sweatshirt and still had a stash of African print fabrics I collected in South Africa." So she decided to make one of her own.
Michelle, who blogs at A Little Tipsy, admits that she's the girl who buys a 5XL t-shirt from the dollar store because she likes the color. (I'm with you, Michelle!) After a fruitless search for a cute, short-sleeve swim cover-up, she realized that the oversized aqua dollar store t-shirt could be refashioned into just what she'd been looking for.
"I have gotten into the habit of throwing on a pair of jeans, the same pair of flip flops, and a solid scoop-neck tee every day. Boring," confessed Lisa at Mabey She Made It. She decided to switch things up a bit by refashioning one of those tees, a red one like the one pictured below.
Over at Mabey She Made It, Lisa had a pair of jeans that she wasn't getting much use out of, anymore. "They looked good on me, but the rise was just too low for me to be comfortable in," she tells us. Time for a refashion! (FYI, Lisa didn't have a before picture, so her jeans were similar to the ones pictured below.)
Over at my other blog, Infarrantly Creative, I recently shared a tutorial for a fun refashion. I took scraps of fabric--including some that used to be t-shirts--and turned them into cute, comfy skirts for my little girl!
I get so excited when Nicole from The Felted Fox sends in clothing refashions. Not only does she have great taste and fantastic ideas, but she models her creations so well that I feel a little bit like Anna Wintour while I'm figuring out which pictures to show you! This refashion features the classic little black dress.
At Maybe She Made It, Lisa picked up this cute gray and white argyle sweater at a thrift shop for a song. However, after washing it, she discovered that it was a little shorter and tighter than she would be comfortable wearing. Rather than waste the sweater, she decided to refashion it.
