Today is second monday of "unfinished projects". Time for another ongoing project.
You're invited to show me your stuff as well!
Last winter I started to "upcycle" baby clothes. Well, upcycling is not really a good word in combination with such sweet thing like baby clothes. And somehow it's not really upcycling as well what I'm doing.
I made a little sketch to show you the simple idea behind project no. 2:
When I got the idea I went to the local thrift store and bought three sweet little romper suits. All a bit different in style (with/without legs/arms) and size.
Then I just tried out. Sewing, cutting, sewing. I tried to keep as much of the original as possible. I also tried to be inspired by the cloth to which animal it would change. Out came:
..a kangaroo (why was i about to write giraffe?) with a baby
..a tiny bat
Unfinished? Why? you may ask. Because there's at least one to go. As a christmas present for our friends I gave them a voucher for an animal of one of their baby's rompersuits. And this is what is still waiting for me. Sweet, huh?
Something to go for!
