Take the Old and Create the New.

My daughter has grown so much the last few years.  We haven’t bought her any new pajama pants in a while because she was just wearing everyday shorts while it was hot.  Come winter time, she tried on her old pants and they were too long to be capris and too short to be pants.  Instead of going out and wasting money buying more, I decided to cut them off and make them into shorts.  I brought out my dusty sewing machine, cut them off and sewed a hem into the bottom.  It wasn’t very difficult and made something bend new!  (The actual hard part was remembering how to thread the machine and refill and replace the bobbin!)
