Last weekend, we got news that the F.O.S. outlet was having a closing down sale, and that everything in there was going at 70% off. So we rushed down and ransacked the bins for goodies galore. Sadly, the sizes were too big and the cuttings unflattering, but one of our expecting moms-to-be decided that that was good news. So we grabbed a few colors and prints that were eye-catching, and were delighted to know that our bill for 5 pieces only came up to RM13.90! (the tags state 50% but they were all 70% off).
We brought the bundle home to let our designers play, and within a few hours, they’d already come up with good use to two of the blouses we purchased…
Yup, we made baby clothes out of the oversized blouses. See, it’s no surprise that quality baby clothing comes with a hefty price, and buying jersey cotton by the metre at your local fabric store even pricier… So we took the clothes and used them as if raw fabric. The total cost for this dress and onesie was RM5.50, and was such fun to make that we’ve dug out some old tees for our designers to make even more clothes with! If you’re a stay-at-home mom with the most basic of sewing skills, this is a fun and cost-efficient project to bond you with your child
Oh, and if you were wondering how we made the adorable penguin and deer, well… we didn’t. We merely bought some iron-ons from a haberdashery. You can also purchase sheets of iron-on felt to make your own patterns out of at Artfriend, and for other cute add-ons, Czip Lee has many adorable buttons and gadgets to bedazzle your child’s outfit with. Have fun!!!
