Did you know that March is National Craft Month? I didn’t know either but, it is! My friend Steph from Crafting In The Rain is celebrating all month long. She asked several bloggers and me to celebrate with her by choosing a letter and making something that starts with or uses the letter. I chose the letter U because I wanted to do something with the U of U since she is a BYU fan!!!! Well, I changed my mind last minute and decided to do an upcycled skirt because my little girl is in need of some new skirts for spring.
This is seriously one of the easiest skirts you will ever make, even if you don’t really know how to sew.
Take a shirt, just a regular t-shirt.
This shirt has hung in my closet for way to long so it had to go.
It looks huge but it is a women’s medium.
Cut a straight line all the way across the shirt right under the arms.
Now take the bottom part of the shirt and turn the part that you cut under to form a hem for elastic. Measure around your child’s waist and cut the elastic 2 in. shorter than needed. Then, put it in the hem and sew your elastic ends together and the hole you left for the elastic.
Check out what the other bloggers did with their letters.
