The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 224 - Dog tutu marries Christmas onesie

Yesterday ended up being a massive day for us. After Juliet and I made the skirt, two children learnt to ride a bike in one day, and then she lost her first tooth. It was the perfect ending to a lovely weekend barely leaving our property.

Here is Ms Happy Gappy. So, so excited.

This refashion began with a dog costume. A dog tutu that was always miles too big for my maltese cross pooch. Here it is. Sitting around feeling unloved.

I decided it should have a marriage with this Christmas onesie that came in a bag of baby boy clothes someone gave me years ago when I was pregnant with Mr 3 year old.

 I cut the dog costume off under the arm area.

Found some lace to add.

And attached both of them to the bottom of the onesie. Now we have a Christmas fairy. Cute? I think so.

This is for a one year old girl so My D was kind enough to model it for us. He is going to be one very soon. Aaargh!!


  1. Hehe, thats a photo for D's 18th birthday party ;)

    A very big weekend in your household, gotta love a tutu, this little refashion is so cute.

  2. Thanks Erica. Yes I think I have quite a few 18th birthday photos sorted for the kids already. :-)
