Decorate a onesie for a baby shower gift! It's so easy, and so cute.

Turn your favorite knit fabric into a trendy two-color headband!

Stitch a simple apron that's perfect for grilling or baking! A big pocket allows you to carry your cooking tools, while a long apron tie makes it one size fits all.

Use denim fabrics to create a simple apron with a pocket.

Add pizzazz to a plain T-shirt with a pocket that packs a punch! 

Turn a T-shirt into a cute summer skirt. Slice two rectangles from a T-shirt, add seams, a casing and elastic; you’ve got it made!

A casing is a hollow channel that holds elastic. It’s a quick way to cinch in and finish a skirt, shorts, or pant top without making a separate waistband. Learn how!

Old T-shirts are perfect for stocking up on headbands! Patterned T-shirts make great accessories to stylish outfits. Or use your old ratty ones to hold your hair back when you workout.

It's the small touches that make an outfit! Whip up quick and easy bow ties for the men in your life, so they'll always be prepared (and looking good) for a celebration.

This cuddly bolero is a fun piece for toddlers and girls to wear over T-shirts or dresses. It is fully reversible without any seams showing, so it can match any outfit!
