...To Pimp my Caddy!!!
This is my updated Caddy-lac!
If you home school or have in the past (like me) You might recognize this...
My Home School Mom Uniform....LOL!
It had pockets in the back...DEEP pockets in the front...and look at all that material!!!
It has seen better days and I don't wear it anymore either.
I stitched it back to the skirt to make a bottom for my liner, it's on the inside so all my stuff can go in those luscious pockets!!!
Then I, more or less, created a reversible bag...using this technique and tutorial @ Skip to My Lou and a really cute yellow vintage KING SIZE pillow-slip-- :)
But then it was too small, because like I said "look at all that material" ...Sewing the bag together was pretty easy, but once it was turned 'RIGHT- SIDE -TO' ...does anyone else use that term or is that just something my Mom said?
...It wasn't big enough to tie onto the caddy properly (with my cute little strap-ties) , rather than rip it out and start over ...OR LABEL THIS A FAIL...
I remembered my little 'grommet kit' my daughter gave me for Christmas...
popped 4 little grommets on the OLD UNIFORM, grabbed some basic curtain clips and dropped it into the caddy --hardware style!
I also had this little "P" I bought for $.40 at the thrift store last week...
painted it all up with the right proportions of green, blue and yellow...because that's what I had and it matched the pillow slip ...PERfectLY!
And now she's ready for shopping! Only,she's all dolled up and I've no place to go... BUT I'M READY!
I recently started crocheting a new bath mat and seat cushion (rag crochet) I incorporate lots of old clothes that can no longer be worn and are too bad to donate...plus it keeps these things out of the land fill.
Have you used old clothes for any sewing projects lately?
