Make do and mend Monday

Elizabeth has a couple of cute long sleeve shirts here.
It is way too hot for long sleeves and these shirts will be
too small for her by the time it is cold again.
So, my make do and mend project today
was to alter these shirts.
I just cut off the sleeves....
turned under the edge about 3/8 inch and pinned it up.
then I just machine stitched with invisible thread.

I think the whole project took 15 minutes.

2 re-done shirts
perfect all the hot days to come

  1. That is such a great idea since kids do grow out of things far too quickly. It makes them a great way to grow with her a little longer before she can no longer wear them.

  3. Great way to get 2 seasons out of clothes and then sell. Can always use the sleeves to sew onto some short sleeves in the winter. Can mix up colors!

  6. What a great idea! You are such a smart grandma.
    Your little ones in the pool in the post before this one is so sweet. It brings back memories of my two when they were that age. Lots of work, but equally fun!
    Hugs, Cindy
