Creative juices are flowing again!

I have been very inspired lately by several different blogs and pinterest by all of the awesome upcycling. I have a stack of shirts and tshirts that I am ready to redo for Alyvia.

Here's my first...I guess you could call it upcycling. It used to be a pillowcase dress that I made several years ago. It got too short so I made it into this adorable shirt. It way cuter this way than it was as a pillowcase dress if I do say so myself.
