Repurposed

It's very hard to say goodbye to your favorite jammies.

The ones that you've snuggled and cuddled in.

The ones that have kept you warm and comfy for the past two years and fit just right.

Not to mention that they're fun and funky with bright polka dots.

So, what do you do when they don't fit "just right" anymore??? Camille couldn't handle getting rid of them so I suggested we repurpose them.

I was able to cut out some pieces that were still in good shape along with the elastic waistband that had the cutest teal ribbon tie. I combined them with some of my fabric scraps and ta-da!!


Camille now has a new travel pillow! What's best is that it holds a part of her past, a piece of comfort for her, and it was made with love from her Mom.

What an excellent idea! Very cute pillow, too.
My daughter had a little Dora the Explorer couch and I messed it up by washing the cover and shrinking it so it wouldn't fit on the foam form anymore, so I made a pillow and blanket out of that material. But don't worry, we bought her another chair :)
Thanks for the inspiration!
