Growing up, my Mom always made little Valentine’s Day gifts and cards for us and I’ve tweaked that tradition into making a DIY Valentine’s Day Shirt for my kids instead. I appreciate having a fun little holiday to break up the winter blahs, put up some festive decorations, and have an excuse to eat candy. I haven’t blogged each year’s shirt (and one year my Mom made them!) but in the past I’ve shared a dump truck valentine shirt and an upcycled valentine shirt.
If you have a plain, unremarkable old sweatshirt hanging around, I have some fun recycle sweater hat inspiration for you! I sewed up this cozy winter bonnet as a gift and am finally sharing it; it’s made from one of my favorite winter patterns that seems to fit kids’ heads really well. It’s just icing on the cake that I used scraps and upcycled materials to make it!
Time for a refashion! Magda blogs at House of Estrela and hosts Refashion Month every year – I’ve participated the past two with a men’s button-up refashion & a jogger pants refashion. I love the extra push to get something actually refashioned instead of clothes just sitting in my “idea” pile.
After having two kids, everything has shifted around, and I found that several of my t-shirts felt too short. Adding a faux second-layer and a pocket jazzed up this plain white tee – now it covers my rear and I can wear it with leggings!
If you’re new to refashioning and don’t have a “stash” of clothes to work from, check out my post on shopping for refashions and upcycles!

After three years of being a stay at home mom with my son, my pants have seen better days. Instead of trashing them, I’m sharing a simple tutorial for upcycling jeans into star-shaped beanbags. Backyard games are a fun summer tradition, and what better way to play than with a sweet treat in hand! We love ice cream, so this might be my favorite sponsored post ever, being able to buy EDY’S® Ice Cream as a business expense.
