In the winter, I made the cutest ruffles to lengthen Carleigh's velour pants that were just a tad too short. She's at that awkward clothes stage where her legs are long and require a size that will swallow her waist. I'm not too big on shopping, so maybe they're out there, and I just don't know it, but why do the girl sizes go from a 7/8 to a 10/12? Does that seem like a huge leap to anyone besides me? Anyway, here is a pic of the pants with one side done and other not so you can see the before and after...
Something else I've done is reclaim the small armoire from Carleigh's room and paint it black. I'm planning on organizing it with all of our craft, scrapbook, and sewing stuff. I also painted the backside of the long mirror with chalkboard paint. It's just been sitting in Carleigh's room with all of Emma's clothes still folded in the drawers. I couldn't bring myself to empty it for a long time. Now Cora is big enough to wear the cute clothes. It's bittersweet. It's sweet that Cora can wear her sister's hand-me-downs, but I sure do wish her big sister was here for me to say, "you wore that when you were little, Emma!"
Got the idea for the knobs at Maple and Magnolia.
Here are some flip flops I made for our friend's 1/2 birthday. What's that? You don't celebrate your 1/2 birthday? Well, you should! (Long story about how I can't get my act together. I'll share at a later date.)
|Oh boy, what a mess! Sorry about the poor quality of photos. These are taken with my cell phone. I couldn't get my camera to download anything. Ugh!|
|Might not look a whole lot better, but it is organized now!|
So, what are you up to? Any fun transformations around your house?
