I don’t know about others, but I love to recycle clothes and I love to sew for my children and when I can combine those two I have a lot of fun! During this time in my little one’s life we get and use lots of hand-me-downs and there are always tons of tee shirts. Here’s a simple way to use up some of the extras: Tee Shirt Dresses!
The purple dress was actually free. I cut the skirt from a stained church dress (found in one set of hand-me-downs) that I couldn’t get clean and attached it to the coordinating tee (found in another set of hand-me-downs)! The green and brown dress cost $0.50 for the 1/2 a yard of $1 fabric. I already had the lace. I did splurge a little on the cupcake dress as it was for her birthday because I really wanted teal/blue cupcake fabric, but I still only spent $2! I already had the ribbon seen on the hem line left over from our wedding (uhum…definitely time to use it up!).
Well, this is the last week of Frugal Photo Friday. I’ve enjoyed participating and hope I’ve not bored you too badly! 😉 Head on over to Money Saving Mom and Simply Rebekah for more Frugal Photos and fun money saving ideas.
