I have very busy repurposing things around the house lately.
First, I pilfered an old shirt from Dave for a dress for A. It was a fairly straight-forward task. I followed this tutorial. She loved the dress. I have one more shirt waiting to be transformed.Next, I turned my attention to shirt of E's onto which I had spilled a drop of bleach. I decided to try reverse tie-dyeing. Voila a new look! E loves it.
Next up were some baby legwarmers for the wee folk. I grabbed two pairs of my knee highs and transformed them into legwarmers for the kiddos. Rave reviews for the third time!

Benton turned a half year with a flourish. He scoots around the floor, sports a tooth with another waiting to emerge, smiles at his family and friends and is an all-around delight. He is becoming more active in his environment. He chews on whatever he can find. Aine can make him belly-laugh like no one else. He is good tempered and will happily go wherever his family travels. He endured the long trip to and from Michigan and Ohio with nary a complaint. He loves being carried in the sling or ergo. He is a cuddly bear and we love him. (Vitals 20lbs, 6 oz; 28.5 inches)
