In my window box seat, where I keep my sewing stash, I found a couple of old shirts of my son's. They were too good to throw out but no good for a charity shop because they were ripped on the sleeves. I found a pattern for a pair of child's shorts, and repurposed a striped shirt into some cotton shorts to fit a four year old. I enjoyed the pattern so much that I made a second pair out of a piece of blue fabric left over from a skirt I made a while back.
By now I was on a roll, so I pulled out my favourite girl's pattern and made a little tie-top dress. The fabric comes from a duvet set I found in an RSPCA charity shop. It is really versatile, with patterned and plain sections in pink and purple, hence the two-tone effect.
I've left the sewing machine out - I wonder whether I will feel like dong some more sewing tomorrow?
