"CHECK" this out!

How much cuteness
is this little creation!
(And the jumper's cute, too!)
I just had to show you what Middle Daughter over at Sugar and Spice did last week! She found a "super easy" tutorial at Made by Lex for turning a man's shirt into a darling child's jumper, and then she did it! (And never let it be said that my son-in-law, Saint William, wouldn't give my grandbabies the shirt off his back . . . okay, so it was in that back of the closet, still, you get the idea.)
Middle Daughter is going to shorten the shoulder straps later so that Bella can wear it shirtless (!) this spring, but for now, isn't it adorable with that Kentucky turtleneck!
Middle Daughter does a wonderful blog about life as a stay-at-home mom of two little ones -- lots of fun ideas to share with other young moms (and young grandmoms!), and Lex really does have some fabulous sewing/crafting tutorials that you'll love, too (as well as an Etsy shop). I'd encourage you to mosey on over for a visit -- I know they'd both love to see you!
Meanwhile, over here at Casa St. Michael's neck of the woods, I finally drug out some heart-y stuff to celebrate Valentine's Day. Maybe I'll be able to upload some pics and share 'em with you later this week -- after I get grades posted for my babies' progress reports! (Do you ever feel like if you just had a secretary to handle the paperwork, you could really set the world on fire? Either that or get in some serious trouble . . . )
Have a mah-velous Monday, sweet sistas!


  1. What an adorable little dress! My grandma made dresses for me out of my grandpa and daddy's shirts. Thanks for stirring a memory from the 50s.


  2. What a sweet little girl and dress!

  3. That is adorable! What women use to do with old clothing. Turn them into something else or put them into a quilt.

  4. The dress is SWEET! And from Daddy's shirt...too wonderful for words!!
    When our own children do these things for their children...just makes you smile from ear to ear, and want to shout it from the roof tops!
    Your grandaughter is beautiful!

  5. That turned out adorable! And the dress is cute too!

  6. Beyond cuteness..........and the little dress is pretty sweet too.. :-)


  7. Wow, that is adorable! Nice to see people repurposing things and getting a little more use out of them!
