I made this bag for my yoga mat from the leg of a pair of too-long capris. I pulled the drawstring at the bottom of the leg tight to form the bottom of the bag and preserved the buttons above the fly to keep the top closed. A strap made from the excess material makes it easy to carry, and the buttoning back pocket is perfect for my ID and keys.
This shirt is made from a magenta t-shirt and an old maternity blouse. I loved the fabric of the blouse, but it was too much for a whole shirt. I removed the sleeves of both shirts and added the patterned ones to the magenta shirt to spice it up. I love pink and orange together.
When my daughters shirts get too short but are still favorites of hers, I will sew on a quick gathered skirt so she can keep wearing them. I liked how this combination of shirt and skirt fabric turned out.
I added some interest to this plain turquoise shirt by making ribbon flowers and sewing seed beads into the center of each.
Here is a felt-applique robot shirt that I made for my son when he was a baby. I use felt applique to make a lot of stuff for the kids when we can't find the characters they like on store-bought items.
