Up-Cycled T-shirt dress!

Round these parts we have a 2nd hand kid store called Kid 2 Kid. Same idea as Children's Orchard. Well, I took a decent sized box to my local store to get store credit or cash. well, sadly they didn't like/need a bunch of the stuff I had brought in. I thought I'd donate it to another kid in the ward until I came across this fantastic idea!
Cheri, over at I am Momma Hear Me Roar, stepped away from creating awesome-ness for boys and shared her creativity for "Up-cycling" clothing into something far better, and much cooler than it's original form. She even gives a step by step tutorial on her blog.

So I decided to take those unwanted shirts and make them in to some t-shirt dresses! I was able to make 3 within an hour! Look out DI...here I come!

Take a look!


Reese was excited to wear a "brand new dress that mom made" to school today!


So much for buying new stuff, I serisouly am going to hit up the DI for some quiality up-cycle-able pieces!

I need a good idea to give Laina's hand-me-downs a new twist. I just need to round up a sewing machine (it's still on the wish list.)
