Many Thanks Ribbon Card

This is another great addition from the card group.
The ribbon weaves through the white paper, which is the front of the card.
The stripes on the side can be seen when you open it.
Super cute.

one Old Shirt becomes one Toddler Sun Dress

Ready for a cute and easy makeover?

I got a bunch of clothes from my friend (thanks Brigitte!)
In the pile was this:

It looks like it was made for a little girl, right?
Wrong!  It totally fit me.
Only... I'm not 10, so I couldn't pull it off.

I made it into a cute little sun dress for my friend's daughter, Cami.

Do you have an old shirt like this?
Want to make your own?

Here's How:
Start by measuring the bust of the girl you want to make it for.
I ended up taking mine in about 1" on each side.
Sew a straight line through the elastic portion.

Then cut away the excess.

Take the 'L' shape and fold it over.
Sew it in place (this will make a little pleat).

Now work on your straps (you'll have to measure on your little girl again).
I ended up just unstitching one side,

And then crossing them in the back.

And that's it!

I had Cannon's favorite little gal Melayna model it for me...

Pretty adorable, hu?
The dress isn't that bad either...
