I know what you’re thinking–“Of course the cap is sleevless. Sheesh!” Sure, sure. But wait. That’s not what I mean. This stripey cap that’s a sweet little cross between Wee Willie Winkie and Captain Jack is made from a SLEEVE.
Back last Christmas, I was making a valiant attempt to be frugal and creative at the same time. Often that can go quite badly, but lucky for us–it turned out surprisingly well. The bottom left piece of this shirt was made into rice pillows. The bottom right piece was made into night caps for the bald kid–he didn’t even mind the flowers. The neck piece is still in the creation stage.
And the sleeve pieces I just turned wrong side out…
and sewed up the curved side. Here they are turned right side out again.
The babies have had these since December but Lily has just discovered that she can actually put them on…
pretty much by herself.
Simple. Sweet. Free.
