Blue button top

March 19, 2011

My 'pensive' little 2 1/2 year old reading an empty notebook...and wearing a little t-shirt I recycled. I chopped up a top of mine as I couldn't remove the stain from under the collar. Usually it would go straight to the rag bag, but now that I have 'blog brain' I thought, "I could recycle it!"  
I just used another of Isabella'stops and traced around it. I didn't take the sleeves in, but gathered them at the top. They were still too big, thus the cute button tucks. The existing top of mine is pictured below. I love recycling!


Note: this post is also just an excuse to put this picture of Isabella up because I love it.
