Reuse, refashion, upcycle, recycle.
Here's a super easy "refashion" for you.
I started with this infant bodysuit (aka onesie) which had been handed down from JJ to Bee, and as you can see, had been loved just about to death.
|Holey crotch, Batman!|
Initially I was considering cutting out the little baby giraffe design to appliqué onto a plain top, but then I thought - BABY CARDIGAN! So obvious, and so easy...
(OK, I'll admit that I first tried to do the hem with my new double needle, but failed dismally in getting the tension right. So I cut off that dodgy hem and instead re-hemmed twice using my normal needle. Not quite as straight as it would have been with the double needle, but certainly good enough. And Bee doesn't mind...)
