I been in a weird mood all week and I can't put my finger on it. this morning I actually got up after my hubby... that hasn't happened in month. In my defense I had to take pain meds last night, since I twisted my knee and couldn't get the pain to calm down; so blame it on the meds.
I been also in this creative mood. Usually i quilt when I feel like this except it's summer and I can't be tied down for long time projects when it's hot out and I got a garden to tend and places to go and this to do... so I fell to my back up projects. I make doll clothes and girl's dresses with old T-shirts. They get tank shirts in the winter so they remember to wear them under their clothes and don't get sick so often. We live in Texas and my kids think just because it doesn't get cold here as much their kids (my grandkids) don't need the extra precaution. So I give them undershirts for the winter and they feel guilty for not wearing them... yah I know that is really not nice of me, but it works for the most part when the grandkids get sick only half as often as their friends. Anyway in the summer I make them bring those shirts back and I turn them into summer dresses for romping and playing and not having to worry about them getting dirty.
So here is one I made for my daughter-in-law's niece... wow that is a mouth full, say that three times in a row

I made this one for my grand-daughter... she loves my dresses and always looks forward to them...
So I called her last night and told her that i been at the store and found a sale for dresses. I said that I bought her two dresses... and that I also made her a dress... and this kid is four right... she goes, so, Oma if you bought me two dresses and you made me one, than I get 3 dresses and proceeded to cheer. Nothing gets by this kid. I cracked up and even my daughter, who was listening in, was stunned.

    What a great idea on turning those shirts into summer dresses - and they are lovely! I admire folks like you with a creative bent. At my house those old shirts would have become dust rags!
