Here's a quick share of some baby girl refashion ideas...
This set is made of an old maternity shirt (pink stripes) and a bit of an old white Tshirt. (Pardon the phone pictures.)
I made the onesie using an old onesie that I cut apart as my pattern. The scratch mitts were made from my Infant Scratch Mitt Pattern and Tutorial here, and the tie-top hat was made from Tie Dye Diva's pattern found on Sew Mama Sew.
Don't forget the ruffles! Lots and lots of ruffles.
Flannel burp cloths- yeah, these are not refashions, although some are made from scraps of fabric used to make jammies, but I am including them anyway, because they are a great way to use up small pieces of fabric, and you can make them out of old flannel shirts, pants, even jersey Tshirts. They can have batting in the middle or not. I made my own pattern for these, but there are several free versions on blogs- just Google it or check Pinterest! These tend to be more absorbent than the ones you can buy from the store, so these make nice gifts.
Baby leg warmers made from Dollar Tree socks. Again, there are several free tutorials out there to make these.
This is a peasant skirt that I tried so hard to like, but it was just too generous in adding bulk around my hips, and... I just don't need any extra volume in that general area. So, my hip- fluffing skirt became a sweet little summer dress for my niece who should be arriving in the next few weeks!
The extra material made a nice diaper cover- tutorial found on MADE.
Can't wait to meet my niece in the very near future! :D Think happy, positive childbirth thoughts for Marissa if you will- good karma, right? Maybe soon I can post pictures of the little miss wearing some of these outfits!
