Staying true to my upcycling commitment, the blue side was a 1rm (15p / 20c) sleeveless blouse from a 'bundle' shop in KL, and the spotty side was one of my baby's receiving blankets.
Although it's a bit big yet, I couldn't resist trying it on her and I'm really please with how it turned out. Usually when I go to try things on her, I realise the armholes are too tight or she can't get her head through so this was a definite win. Next challenge: diaper bloomers to match!
What I learnt:
- receiving blankets have way more material in them than you'd think
- sometimes unpicking hems and seams is really worth the time it takes (for that extra inch of material) on items to be upcycled
- covering buttons with material is easy with Daiso's 5rm packs of 24
- pressing seams can make a project go from beginner to brilliant
