I belong to an on line mail and craft swapping site called Swap-bot. For a recent scavenger hunt swap, I received in the mail my swap partner a piece of her favorite skirt that was too thread bear to continue wearing but too precious to discard. So she sent it my way thinking I could find something creative to do with it. When it arrived I noticed she sent the bottom hem that was slightly gathered and the perfect length for a skirt. So I finished the edges added elastic and made a skirt. I then set out to make a simple top to match. I added some pink seam binding and used another scrap to create a hair band.
I am thrilled with how a piece of a favorite skirt has been reborn into a new outfit that I will now send her back as a surprise for her new baby daughter to enjoy as she gets older. So before you toss out or pass down a favorite item, think about weather or not you could re-purpose it into something special for your doll.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
