Turn big t-shirts unto really cute kids t-shirt and a onesie

 So, like I told you yesterday, I asked my mom to send the kids some Haitian T-shirt for our flag day and she send four of them and the smallest one was a bit too big for me...Bless her sweet little heart but I can't never tell to buy clothes for the kids...I had to improvise and think of something real quick and when I decided to just cut the flag from the big shirts and sew it on the little ones. I really like how they turned out...I am sure someone who is better a sawing will have done a better job, but I think they turned out really cute still!


    I took the HUG t-shirts and cut out the flag parts.

 I brought those at Hobby Lobby and they were great quality materials.
I placed the flags where I wanted them to be on the shirt and use pins to keep them in place, after that, I saw them which took about 1/2 hour to do.

 And VOILA, cute t-shirt for our Haitian Flag Day celebrations!


Like them?!

Listening to Princess G. making music out of our pots and pans...I am sure going to regret this when I get my headache later on today!
what are some annoying things that your kid do but for some add reasons, you just let them?

Ps. Later on, I will show you how to make bottle cap...as soon as those hooligans go down for a nap.

I think you did a great job!!
For some reason my nephew is obsessed with the GPS thingee in the car. He loves to watch the "miles remaining" tick off, and notify us every tenth of a mile that there are "36 and 7/10 left. 36 and 6/10 left." He also sings this song called "How many more miles are left?" that he made up and forces us to guess. It was cute when he was about 6. Now he just does it because he knows how annoying it is, lol.

Love them! What a creative way to reuse the shirts and make them kid friendly. You did a fabulous job!

You're so much smarter than I am! I just would have been disappointed the shirts didn't fit and would have had nothing for the kids, but your sewing saved the day :)
