Flower Ruffles Shirt

So I have been on a craft kick lately. It has been fun for the most part. I just hope Olivia hasn't heard to many of those four letter words that I only say when I am frustrated! Anyway, I have been blog stalking so many crafty blogs out there, and have been inspired to make Olivia a shirt. And hopefully one for me too! So I was set out to do it and to do it for a very thirty price.
This is what I did:
I started with one of her onesies that she no longer wheres. (still is the right size for her, we have just done away with onesies.)

Then I cut off the bottom of it and added a ruffle around the bottom.

Then I took an old pair of sock that i know longer need and made arm warmers... (Kind of like the leg warmers that you see all the time that are so cute.)

Then I added some flowers to the front, put on her arm warmers and Voilá!
Here she is in her new shirt. Total cost of shirt re-make??
.90 (gotta love the clearance rack at Joannes!)

Oh my goodness! That just made my day! By far the cutest and cleverest thing I have seen made this year! I am very impressed Heather! Your purse was absolutely amazing also. I am definitely going to "try" to do a variation on this one, if you don't mind? Who do I make the copyright checks out to? You need to make a company name or something. BRAVO!!

You're so talented Heather. Your projects always turn out absolutely adorable. You inspired me to START putting up a few things on the walls of our house and actually pounding in my own nails - that's about as daring as I get :). I love Olivia's ruffled shirt and arm warmers!
