Here is another quick refashion I did for Bella. I took a maternity shirt that I had and took it in to fit her. It already had straps so I just took them off, shortened them and repositioned them with a criss cross on the back. I don't like this quite as much as the other one I made for her since it isn't as full. Bella likes it though, so I am happy.
Here is the before. If you look close you can see the saftey pin at the top where I have it pinned together to mark the new seam.
Here is the back with criss cross straps. I ended up having two seams since I used more than half the shirt so I centered the two seams on the back.
We were once roommates but now are separated by many miles. We love to craft. Or at least we are learning to. This is our space to craft together. Welcome to our virtual Apartment 90.
The Monthly Challenges
Each month we'll post an idea or ideas in four categories: seasonal craft self craft child craft recipe recommendation
You're welcome to do none, one, or all! It's just a way to try and motivate ourselves to create something (hopefully) fun and rewarding. Anyone is welcome to link and share completed projects or ask questions about current projects!
I live in Northern California with my Husband and three children. I am a teach-myself kind of girl. This year I would love to learn how to bind a quilt and maybe make some jewelry.
I'm a stay at home mom of 2 little boys and am currently living in TX with my husband and kids. I mostly enjoy crafting "practical" items that will get a lot of use or serve a purpose around the home.
I'm a home mom too. I'm excited to craft with these ladies to learn new things, make some cool crafts, and enjoy long lasting friendships. "My love for us grows more and more every day! To apartment 90!"
I am lucky to stay home to care for my three adorable children. I can be crafty- if I take the time to do it. However, crafting hasn't been a priority in my life. But I do like handmade things. Mostly I like the message that handmade things send- "I love you so much that I spent time to create this just for you!"
I am a mother of 3 who loves cloth diapers, healthy cooking, and making things for my little ones. I would love to make time do more sewing, card making, quilting, and crafts that I can do alongside my children. I also teach Spanish part time at a Montessori school.
