Repurpose A Cute Sheet Into A Shirt

The beautiful thing about having your last child is that when he is done with an item (high chair, clothes, etc.) you can get rid of it. No more storing!

The only time this is sad is when they outgrow something that you love.

There was always something about this crib sheet of my daughter’s that made me happy. Once she moved from her toddler bed into a twin, it was time to say goodbye.

But I just couldn’t.

Since its life as a sheet was over, I grabbed some scissors and started cutting.

I loved the pattern and thought it would look cute on clothes. I just found some solid clothes from my daughter’s closet that could use some lovin’.

Then I pinned some small cut outs from the sheet onto the items and sewed them down using a zig-zag stitch (twice around).

And now my beloved pattern lives on.

Her tank top had bunched fabric in the front so I had to sew the design on the back. I was afraid it would be weird but decided to try it anyway.

It ended up being my favorite.

This idea would also work to add a fun design to curtains, pillowcases or even to frame it for decor.

Sometimes you don’t have to say goodbye. πŸ™‚
