Back To School: Zebra Print Leggings


Hello lovelies! Welcome to the next two weeks of back to school fun.
I am planning on showing a bunch of little kids refashions, some great back to school projects, our home-schooling planning for next year, and our summer fun wrap up. I am excited for the next two weeks and all I have planned to share with you. I hope you all enjoy it as well and maybe get to sewing and crafting for your littles before school starts in a few weeks.

My first refashion is so simple. I lie not. It took less than five minutes.

I found this outfit for Miss Priss at Deseret Industries. This is a thrift store by us, which I happen to love and frequent often.

The zebra leggings were one dollar, but were very long.
Long paints do not work in this 110 degree weather we have been having, so I cut them off below the knee.

Since they were cotton, I didn't even hem them. I just kept the raw edge there. They wont' fray. The shirt was also purchased at DI for $2.00

I made her hair pompoms, which are available in my etsy store for $3.50 per pack of pony tail holders or $2.00 for one. If have a special color you would like they can be made to order.

Here whole outfit was $3.00
Perfect for back to school!



This outfit was pefrect for a summer fun Museum trip with friends.
