THis is such a great idea, reusing your jeans to kid jeans.  Do you need to resew the leg width to make smaller for your kids?

If you decide to send clothes to other crafters, I'd happily pay shipping for some jeans and t-shirts (especially solid colors, specifically white)! I'm a fluffy gal so once I wear holes in the inner thigh part of my jeans, I use my kids' jeans/pants as a template and make them new pants from my old jeans. I line up the bottom of the pant legs with the bottom of my jeans (assuming they're not worn out) & then I don't have to worry about hemming! Throw an elastic waist on them and voila! 20 minute pair of pants. Then I let my kids decorate them with fabric markers & puffy paint!

For the t-shirts, I re-purpose the body of the shirt into a skirt for my daughter. If the shirt is white, we tie dye it. Larger men's shirts are good size for kids' sleep shirts, cloth diapers, or baby/toddler pants. So yea, if you'd like to unload some quick, pm me. Wink

I just rescued this dresser last night at our neighborhood curbside (today is garbage pick up day).  After bringing it home, I noticed it has more wear than I thought so I can't use it as it is.  It is old ugly brown dresser with bottom of the drawers bent, back has some stains that indicate that this was wet.  Inside the drawer cubbies has dirt and cobwebs probably sitting in a garage or storage.  I can use more shelves or bookcase for books and toys for kids so I thought how I can transform this into something I can use. 
Thank you for any advice.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Has anyone spray painted a stroller? on: January 19, 2009 06:28:03 PM
I got this 2nd hand stroller but I noticed there are some rust? looking spots near screws and joints.  The seat cover doesn't seem to come off.  Is there a way I can get rid of this rust?  Can I spray paint or paint over this spot? 
Has anyone done this before? (revamping a stroller??)
Thank you so much!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Any stroller liner/cover tuts? How to make stroller liner or cover?? on: January 18, 2009 09:29:04 PM
I just researched in this forum and online but didn't come up many of tuts for these.  I bought a used stroller that I like but the stroller liner (fabric feels like heavy canvas type) is not coming off and it has some stains.
I would like to make some cover or liner to go over it but don't know exactly how.  What kind of fabric, whether I need padding or not.
Thank you for advice.

I know this is old post and I was looking for ideas for nursing top.  Thank you so much for sharing this pics and tut.  One more inventive ideas I want to try~!  It looks a little difficult for my skill but def. want to try.

Wow! I love the tops like this one except no back (I will need my whole back covered LOL) and you did a great job for the first timer!  However, I can't follow your tut, it looks over my head (and I can sew - a little-!).  I guess I'll have to re-read several times over to figure this out.
Great job and thanks for the tut, photo, drawings.
