*Renew * Rebuild * Revamp* Redo*

With a few thrift store treasures and some basic sewing skills, you can create original one of a kind additions to your wardrobe, unique gifts, beautiful handbags, adorable hats or anything else that tickles your fancy.
I love hitting up my local thrift stores looking for treasures. They are fun to explore and often help spawn new ideas and inspiration for projects. Reusing once loved goods is one more way to help our planet stay clean. When thrifting always make sure to bring along a friend, the more eyes the merrier!

Re-designed boys polo shirt

This was another thrift store find. I had a request for a grey baby dress so I took a medium sized boys polo shirt, cut off the sleeves, neckline and hem. I added a soft fleece, dark grey bias tape trim to the edges. I then made a little squirrely applique with button eye for extra cuteness. This now belong to my cousin who is expecting a baby girl very soon now. It was a fast project and I am sure I am going to make more of these very soon.
