Repurposing is all the rage.

It's too hot here to even think about ironing.
I had a shirt hanging in my closet that I had never worn. I kept thinking it would fit me after I had the baby, but it just wasn't right. I was going to get rid of it during my latest closet purge, but I decided to make it into a skirt for my Mabel instead. I cut off the top of the shirt, right below the sleeves and made a casing for elastic. I used the neckline for pockets, and one of the cuffs for a tie in the front. I'm not sure about the tie, but Mabel likes it, so I guess it will stay. I love projects like this.

I'm like, so green. :)
