Once there was a linen dress that was too big. So it sat in my closet, alone.Then one day I chopped it up and added some silk ribbon embroidery:
And some vintage buttons and pretty cotton lining:
And the old dress became a new dress:
And together we made someone happy.
(Repurposing is a great way to make things without spending money. Check your closets. There's sure to be a wool sweater with a hole that can be shrunk and made into mittens. Or a out-of-date style in cute fabric that can become a bib, bag, or baby toy. Tablecloths are also great sources of fabric for repurposing projects. Come on, I challenge you to be creative with something you already have!)
