this is....

my way of recycling





1. sweet little Jayne, 2. bouquet Jayne buttons, 3. lunchtime Jayne, 4. lottielulu 031, 5. Anna smock, 6. a picture for you, 7. garden pants, 8. Lottielulu goes to market, 9. Jayne Pini size 3, 10. Anna goes to Mikes, 11. 'Alice' ruffle apron dress, 12. vintage smock, 13. Little Miss Muffett, 14. 'Garden' smock made with vintage sheets, 15. little suzy apron #1, 16. I heart ice creams and birdies take2

I love using old sheets, curtains, teatowels, pillowslips and tablecloths to make kids clothes. I also do the household paper and waste recycling but it isnt half as much fun.

Thanks to three buttons mum for this weeks theme.

I have to agree with you there Ingrid...is there anything better than seeing an old sheet or tablecloth come together into a one-of-a-kind item of clothing? You're mosaic looks gorgeous too!

You are so creative and resourceful! Must give you a real buzz when you can repurpose items into such "one of a kid" childrens clothing.

Such beautiful dresses. I love the prints, so much more interesting than clothes in the shops.
