Mr. Apple recently gave me some old shirts to take to Goodwill. There were some old high school shirts in there, and I thought it was a shame to get rid of them (and who would want them, anyway?). I took one, an old marching band shirt, and made a skirt for the little gal using the Lil Blue Boo twirl skirt pattern. This is a great pattern and a great deal! Just $12, and it includes doll sizes up to women's XL and everything in between. It's super easy too!
This would also work well with old jerseys, especially the t-shirt kind in bright colors that kids get from all their little sports. You know, the ones with colors so intense that you can't wear them in public :-)
I'm Kelly and this is my little apple. She goes by "Sprite" because I think it describes her little personality well. All of my projects are created with her at my feet (sometimes pushing on my sewing machine pedal!). I spend most of my crafting time sewing children's clothes & toys and working on art projects with the little gal, although I don't think there's an art or craft out there that I haven't tried. We're big into upcycling and recycling too. I created this blog to share some of my latest projects and ideas with friends, new and old. Welcome!
