Made It Myself Mondays

Welcome to Funky Cards and

Each Monday Alex, at You Had Me at Craft, will be having a "Linking Party." All you need to do is link something to her blog that you made yourself.

"Post ANYTHING CREATIVE that you made yourself.  Did you sew? garden? paint? create home decor? make jewelry, use vinyl? color? quilt? papercraft? knit? crochet? bake? cook? WHATEVER !"

Well I am in a sewing mood lately.  My mom challenged me to go to my room and take three things out of my closet that I don't wear anymore and make something that I would wear.  Challenge on!

I started with four, but I only used three old tee shirts that I haven't worn in awhile because I have outgrown them.  So what does one do with three old tee shirts?  Well, if you have a sewing machine and two hours and a half hours one can make them into a dress:)

It fits:)  Just in time. Last week it hit 90 degrees here.  I can't wait to see what everyone else makes.  Hope you all join in and add your link!

Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awesome Madison. Your creativity is inspiring. Love the dress....way to go girl!

  2. Oh my goodness Madison!! You are so creative! I just went through my kids closets yesterday and was bagging stuff up take to the a clothing giveaway!
