Baby gown into dress and crochet baby sweater

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I thought I would share what I did to a really cute baby gown that my granddaughter never wore.  She didn't like the gowns.

Found this gown at Hobby Lobby when we were
in the baby shower planning stages.  Mermaids was
the theme and color scheme was Coral and Aqua.  

After my granddaughter was born, we realized she really didn't love the
gown idea.  So a few months went by and I thought,
"Why not make a little dress out of it?!"
It was made a of a thick tshirt type fabric so I
just trimmed off the bottom and stretched it out (no hemming...YAY!)
It turned into a really nice ruffle effect which was perfect.
I realized I had about a 5" piece of fabric left with the elastic
bottom and thought..."Make a headband!!"
I trimmed off the elastic bottom and rolled it and ran a seam up the opposite
side to math the original seam and VOILA!  Headband!!
With the left over couple inches of strips I made the flower.

I found this free pattern and made this cute little sweater too.
It's finally getting to be fall chilly weather so this will be perfect.  :)

My Little Miss model.  We added a pair of white capri leggings.
I love how this turned out!

 Until next time...
