Did all of you see this fabulous idea floating in the blog world a few months ago? It’s from Homemade by Jill and you can find her awesome tutorial here. She has some amazing ideas on her blog. When I saw this one I knew I would have to make it. If you haven’t seen her felt playhouse, then you have to head over.
I changed mine up a bit to fit our needs. You see, we happened to have all of my husband’s childhood Micro Machines. Remember those? Rex loves them, so I made him a cozy caddy for those.

From In My Spare Time
I made this dress from a long sleeve t-shirt from Wal-mart that was getting a little too small for my one year old (when her tummy is hanging out of the shirt I know its time for a refashion:)
I took the t-shirt and tried it on my daughter to figure out where I wanted to cut it off. I wanted to keep the ribbon and bow, so I decided to cut it a little under that.

Sundress upcycle to shoulder bag
A couple of years ago, a friend brought back these beautiful dresses from Bali for my daughters. They did wear them a couple of times, but then told me they felt too scratchy and uncomfy, and so they’ve been hanging in their wardrobe ever since, unused and unloved! Which is a shame because the fabric is beautiful! So I decided that we’d make use of them in a different way! Time for some upcycling!
