Consignment Christmas 2010

This year for Christmas my family decided to exchange 2nd hand gifts. I decided to give "upcycled" clothing to all the kids. I have a bag of old shirts my husband and I don't wear anymore. I used some shirts from that bag as well as a few I bought from Goodwill. Using patterns from Lil Blue Boo and Dana Made It, I sewed dresses for the girls and shirts for the boys. I also made headbands for the girls out of leftover scraps using a tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets. I think they turned out pretty cute!

One of my nephews loves SpongeBob, so I found a large men's t-shirt that had SpongeBob pictures all over it. (Really? A man would wear this???) I then cut out a few SpongeBobs and sewed them on a smaller shirt. (Much more appropriate on a 7-year-old!)
