PR&P: Repurposing Challenge

This week for Project Run and Play, the theme was Repurposing.  So I decided to have some fun.

I used some old jeans and two tshirts.  One was my husbands and one was mine.

I decided to do a sort of rag skirt.  I had a roommate in college who did something similar.  And I always wanted to try it.

So I cut out the denim and the tshirt and laid them on top of each other.  Then I stitched my design.

Took my scissors to it and then washed.  Add a waistband with some pink knit. 

Then made a little cardigan with some short sleeves to go on top.  The cardi is a bit big, but I want it to fit for the summer months.

Now, the challenge is to get her to stay in one place long enough to get a picture.  We were fairly successful.  She did have the phone.

Thought it turned out pretty cute.  Maybe not my favorite ever, but still cute.

Check out my other PRP Projects:


  1. Ooh I love the rag skirt! Must try that! She's a cutie :-).

  2. What a fun technique! I agree with Vonnie and she is a doll! I really love how the cardigan turned out too!

  3. wow, that skirt is super unique!!! It will fit her for awhile, which is great too. I'm loving project Run and PLay! I also linked up this week, a recycled Sweater...Emily@nap-timecreations
