Not the army anymore!December 19, 2011
As a young German dude mein Mann had to do a compulsory year in the army. He kept EVERYTHING! Seriously, in our basement we have boxes full of stuff like this:
Yay! Army rations from nearly 20 years ago! Edible? no Useful? no …but we can’t chuck ‘em out because they’re a “part of his history”…erm…historical hermetically sealed food…an heirloom our daughter will treasure for sure!
Whilst wading through yet another box of priceless army memories I stumbled across some rather interesting items…3 of which I transformed into this:
hem the bottom of your skirt & that’s it! (I love my rolled hem foot!)
Not the army anymore! – but what about the other long john tops…?
…give ‘em an easy lettuce hem & skully patch and you have a rockin’ new mini!
My skirt was such a success I chopped the legs off of my old long john pj’s, stitched ‘em together & made a cutie-pie skirt for our little mouse! *2 legs make a perfect baby-sized skirt & because the “ankles” become the waistband it only needs 2 seams & a hem – super quick to create!
