Michelle and Mikhayla’s NDAD Creation

Jun 22, 2014 | 9 Comments

I love how Michelle and her gorgeous little kiddo Mikhayla took an outgrown garment and turned it into something so cool and practical! This is something that you can craft for yourself, for your kids, for your office and I can’t wait to get started on one myself! Check out what the terrific team of M&M created…

Hi! I have a crafty project made out of an outgrown garment to show you! Mikhayla had a cute little sweatshirt that had our favorite thing in the world on the front of it – SPARKLES! We couldn’t just throw it away!

Tropical Florals, FTW!

It was oh, so colorful, but super loosey-goosey.

Big and billowy!

I had an idea of what I wanted to turn this into, but I couldn’t get started on my upcycling until I got a little bit of ballet in.
