If you have spare fabric laying around, but I'm sure tees would work great as well

Those babyrings are getting me one step closer to breaking out the old sewing machine!

I have tons, but here's what I found. I love upcycling!

Longies from a ripped sweater

A sock bunny from DS's socks he won't wear and fleece from an Old Navy shirt


And a too short skirt turned into a longer skirt with a matching belt
