Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Old Shirt = New Bib

My kids are growing up sooo fast.. and of course outgrowing their clothes even faster!  Usually I find places to donate my kids clothes to.. but my neighbor has an adorable little guy who is still only a toddler so sometimes I save the cutest things for him!
This morning while looking at my littlest guys Oscar
t-shirt (sniff.. sniff)..

 I got to thinking that it would be an adorable bib for Liam (the neighbor).
So I got out my trusty scissors and got to work!
First I cut off the bottom of the shirt in a rounded manner so it had the shape of a bib.

Next I turned the shirt inside out and cut around the seams of the sleeves and cut the sides open.

Then I cut the back so that it was bit shorter than the front and straight across.

Last I pinned the edge of the back and sewed a straight seam so that it would not have a ragged edge.

And viola!  A cute bib for my cute neighbor lovey who said MY name for the first time yesterday!

But of course this is my littest guy being the most adorable model for you!

Have fun upcycling your old clothes!
