So I live around the East Lansing area and MSU is big here, I mean BIG! But I’m still a Michigan girl at heart. But when I kept having these ideas for up-cycled dresses in my head, I KNEW that sports themed ones would be BIG hits around here because of our big rivals from sports. So I ordered some fabric, had a few shirts that I had found and made this SUPER cute Michigan State recycled dress made with black and white polka dots! Didn’t it turn out just adorable!
This was a size 2T/3T and I had my friend’s little model try it on for me to make sure the sizing from the pattern was correct. It turned out amazing and doesn’t she look so cute! She’s repping her school with pride with that big ol’ grin!
So I’ll be making a TON more of these in the upcoming months, I just got a bunch more fabric and a lot more shirts to use! I can’t wait to show them off. If you’d be interested in one, go to my Etsy page or my Facebook page and message me! If you have a shirt you’d like me to use, you can send it to me and a custom up-cycled dress can be made for you.
Most of us here in Michigan had an extra long weekend, and no not because of the Super Bowl! We had a big snow storm here last night and most of us are snowed in!! The kids had a snow day and I had a work snow day! It’s such a great feeling to work for a great company that is so thoughtful for their employee’s and their safety!!
So anyways, with an extra day to be home and craft, I decided to finish up a few Etsy orders and get some new things out there for folks to purchase! I just made this super cute Detroit Tiger’s Shirt that I think will be a hot seller since EVERYONE loves the Tigers!
I also designed some Valentine’s Day Cards for my son and decided that why not add them to Etsy to share if anyone else wanted to be able to use them!
Both of my son’s are still playing lots of hockey, either out in our front yard, or at the rink. Caden got to practice with the Michigan State Spartans hockey team on his birthday and that was exciting for him! Brody gets to do it in a couple of weeks. But Brody also got to participate in a shoot-out between periods at the MSU vs OSU hockey game on January 24th and it was such a great experience! We were so proud of him and of course, he SCORED!!!
