Sewing Project #4

I have a hard time parting with my daughters' old clothes and the memories they hold.  This one was one of my favorites.  I love the colors and ruffles.  It's a onesie and now too small for Kayla but I wanted to repurpose it somehow. 

I cut the top and bottom off of the onesie and kept the big pieces to make a hair accessory.  I used the middle ruffle portion and pinned it to an old white tee.  Then I used my sewing machine and stitched across where I pinned the ruffles and tee together and made this...

 A new dress for Kayla.  It's a bit crooked, I still have a lot to learn and will
 try a different technique next time.

With the leftover fabric I made her a matching hair clippie and now she is ready for spring!
