Sewing Area

How to make ruffled leggings for girls. Kids seem to out grow the length of leggings long before they outgrow the width (butt Area) and that can be frustrating for parents - especially if the leggings match a cute top for the child. Add length by sewing on a ruffled bottom edge with some stretchy cotton fabric scraps. If the leggings do have a top, match the ruffle fabric color to the top.

Lace shirt by deirdre || Sewing idea: Turn tshirt backwards (maybe not necessary), create lace insert where new chest area will be, cut deep back.

DIY Denim tutu. Upcycle an old pair of jeans that may be too short but still fit in the waist. Cut off in a straight line just above crotch area. Lay down tulle flat over the now denim skirt and sew one straight line down the middle. For layers just lay tulle so that more of the length is below where you sew. That's it! Fluff out the tulle and you're done.

excellent way to have a craft area in a small space....
