Turn a Vintage Pillowcase Into a Darling Romper

Vintage pillowcase romper refashion

This picture caught my eye because of the cute florals and how they form such a big contrast on the blue background – then I realized it was a romper made from a vintage pillowcase. Genius! Cass made it with a vintage pillowcase and lace from her stash. You have to pay a visit to her blog because the pictures of the little one running around in it are priceless.

Adding Braided Straps to Flip Fops


I’m a little embarrassed about how much I wear flip flops. But, not embarrassed enough to stop apparently – because I wear them every. single. day. Even in the winter, my friends. So I can appreciate a good flip flop refashion, just like the one Ashley did. Not only do I love the braids but I love the color combination. It’s SO easy to do – visit the tutorial below.

Rainbow Challenge — Ruffle Shirt Refashion Tutorial!

Hi Refashion File friends! It’s Jen here from Tatertots & Jello and I am so excited about the Rainbow Challenge this month.

I can’t wait to see YOUR Rainbow projects. And the winner of the challenge is going to get a $70 package from I Love To Createso cool!!!

Today I want to share an easy little refashion project I created in honor of the Rainbow Challenge — Ruffle Rainbow Shirts!!

I have three girls, and consequently we have a lot of hand-me-down shirts that get donated after being worn by all three sisters. Most of the shirts are not really something that can be worn again, since they are stained or worn out. But I hated to see them sent to the landfills. So I thought it might be fun to take the t-shirts and make something with them.
