Summer to Fall DIY money saver

So most of you, like me, are doing the great clothing switch. You are putting away your kids' summer clothes, and bringing out the winter.

And during all of this, you run into something like this...

This shirt (18mos.) still fits her, but is for the wrong season...

This shirt (12mos.) is for the right season, but to small...

... If only there was some way to put them together.

Yes that was my idea! So I decided to put them together and here is how.

Cut the sleeves off of the long sleeve shirt (that is to small)

Which will leave you with this

Now turn both inside out, and sew them together (like this)

End result (I did a tank top too)

It was super easy!

For all of you pinterest fans, here a picture you can pin...


  1. I have a friend that served in the military and she told me about a website that offers special discounts for military families. What I found surprising was that it not only offers discounts through national companies, they had local restaurants and merchants that offered great deals, some were owned by vets. They also had news, some hilarious jokes, information for people interested in joining the military and so much more! Has anyone else seen this sight and have you gone to some of the businesses listed. Please let me know. The website is: mymilitarypages.com
