Lil' grey sweater-makeover

This little girls sweater was $3.74. My little girl needed a longer sweater than what she had, but finding one was a trick. I saw that there were many people "fixing" sweaters to meet their needs. So I thought it was a great idea and did it too. It is an easy craft idea too. I took the sweater and sewed two zig-zag stitches down the middle, next to each other. I then cut between the stitches. I added a button and small string to hold it closed. Also, I rolled the sleeve cuff up about three inches.

....... New knee length sweater for my little beauty girl! As she was getting out of the car to go to school, I heard one of the teachers comment to her, "Cute sweater". That did my heart good!


Here are some shots of my beauty girl in her sweater.

Zibra purse-change up


I was at the dollar store and saw this little purse. It is not of the highest quality, yet for a buck, who could resist. I did not want short handles, so I cut them. I was just going to re-do the strap, but, decided that I needed an outside pocket and some loops for keys and anything else I NEEDED to hang from the bag. It is a great size, light weight and I am not worried about ruining it! If you have a sewing machine and a scrap or two of fabric, you can turn a non-individual into a one of a kind! I was able to make the change in about 45 to 50 mins.
