Soooooo full disclosure, this upcycle wasn’t planned for February, but it happened. #Thespiritedone celebrates 100 days of school on Tuesday, and for this 100th day, she can either dress in green, or dress as if she was 100 years old, ….not surprisingly she choose both! lol. I picked out all the green fabric I had, so she could have the good selection to pick from, but what does she do? She picked the shirt I got from Goodwill a few weeks ago, that I had already planned an Easter sew for, and I even bought a new pattern for it too. Needless to say I was a little annoyed and to make it worse I felt the pattern she picked was just not fitting, I just couldn’t see it in stripes. But she’s a strong willed one, and before all else, I want her to feel comfortable expressing her fashion sense and allow her to like what she likes, and for her to trust that I’ll help her and encourage her to express herself (within good age appropriate reason of course). So I bit my tongue and got to work, the more I worked on it, the more I could see her vision. It really turned into the most adorable sew, and its absolutely perfect for her dress up idea on Tuesday.
So I have learned my lesson: I must learn to trust her vision more, and just enjoy the journey because she knows what she’s doing! lol
