Sweater to Teddy Bear

Well this was a fun project. I love to recreate as most of you already know. LOL I have been doing a lot of aprons and purses lately. I wanted to try something different. I thought I would try and make a teddy bear out of an old sweater. It turned out so cute and it was actually very easy. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Shirt to Purse

I took the shirt (pictured) and made this purse from the Clover-Trace'n Create bag pattern sold by Nancy's Notions. Having the template that you get with the pattern makes making these purses so fast and easy. Now days with very little time to do the fun things we love to do this is a REAL plus!!

Dress with Jacket to two Aprons

I wish I had pictures of the dress with jacket outfit before I made the aprons. I made two aprons from the dress and jacket, used half of a tea towel for the large front hand pocket and the other half I attached to the ribbon belt ties for drying hands. The top pocket on one apron was made from the embellished jacket. The dress was beautifully embellished at the hem line and the jacket had the same embellishments on the hem line too. I tried to make them similar yet different. I like to make one-of-a-kind. Let me know what you think!
