Mama Made It

New clothes for the munchkin from 2010.

A tank top “upcycled” to a toddler dress.  I had to wing it.  I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I love it.

These were old tank tops.  I used this pattern, which is my go-to for pants or shorts.

The skirt and pants were a score from an estate sale.  They were almost completely finished except for the waistband.

An old long sleeved shirt.   I ran out of material to make the hood, so it ended up just being an over-sized collar, which I love.

Also, I wanted a storage system for her growing number of stuffed toys.  I looked around and found a bean bag made of stuffed animals.  We had been talking about getting a bean bag for her anyway and I thought I probably could make something that would suffice.  I had some help from my sister-in-law and made this!

The munchkin loves it and I am so happy with how it turned out.

I’ve also been into making thigh-high leggings for the munchkin.  I just take knee socks, cut off the foot and do a zig-zag seam.  Fast, easy, and impressive.
