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.
To make this refashion completely no-sew, Jamie used a fabric bonding glue. She cut of the top of the shirt, so she was left with just the part without sleeves. Since the shirt was already hemmed, all Jamie had to do was put in a drawstring waistband. Isn’t it so cute?

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!
This was an easy upcycling project. All of this fabric came from Lil Blue Boo. I took an infinity scarf class at SNAP that she was teaching and grabbed some extra to play with at home. You could get the same types of fabric by cutting up old knit shirts. I simply serge the fabric pieces together and add a waistband. Easy peasy!

Last week I shared some tshirt refashions and upcycles over at Infarrantly Creative. I’ve got plenty of material for these, since between the two of us, my husband and I have a stack of almost 75 old tees! Here’s one I made with my daughter, Kayla.
Kayla and I turned an old white tshirt into a scarf that was just her size. We cut a long rectangle of solid-colored fabric from the shirt. We jazzed it up a bit by stamping designs on it with fabric paint. We chose x’s, o’s, and hearts for Valentine’s Day, but you could really do anything with stamps of your choice. Kayla loves her new scarf, and we had a lot of fun making it together.

Chelsea blogs at Making Home Base. She has an adorable baby girl and lots of fabric scraps leftover from other projects. So, Chelsea used those scraps to make something festive for baby to wear this Christmas!
Ruffled scraps of green make a delightful little Christmas tree when they are sewn onto a onesie. I like the way Chelsea mixed and matched the gingham prints, and used slightly less traditional shades of lime for this project. The overall effect is adorable….especially when it’s modeled by Chelsea’s darling baby girl!
