This is certainly to make a comeback this Halloween Season with the second movie this past Summer. And pretty easy right now that someone has broken it down and made it doable! I just might try to convince my boys to be matching Minions!

Jeans to SHORTS kids Refashion

This is one of my favorite refashions to do for my kids! But this refashion gets “fancy” by adding the pop of color with the darling polka dotted fabric! Get more use out of jeans that are too short or have holes in the knees!

DIY Shimmer Stripes Refashion

Molly took on my Refashion challenge this month by creating something using Fabric Paint. Refashions can be as simple as this one today!

She adds a bit of her personality with a few simple steps.

Supplies:

Tshirt/Top (with stripes)

Shimmer Fabric Paint – (we used white by Tulip from IlovetoCreate.com)

Wax paper or cardboard or freezer paper (to put in between the layers)

Step 1: We chose a striped top and wanted to add some “umphf” to it but adding the same color paint to the stripe. Just Shimmery! Put the wax paper (or other material mentioned above) in between the t-shirt layers.

Step 2: Add the white paint to the white stripes. She found it easiest to use her finger to control the paint on the knit fabric. She also chose to do every other white stripe so there was a hint of shimmer.

Step 3: Let the paint dry for about 1 hour (or the package instructions). Add a second coat as desired. She liked the look of a hint of shimmer and not too over powering.  We love this paint because it doesn’t require any heat setting and it’s the perfect combo of paint and glitter!

Sometimes the best projects are those when the kids can get invovled! Then they want to wear them too! and think of how fun these would be to keep or make a tshirt quilt with and let them see how small their hand was when they were little.
