$6 Girl's Wear GIVEAWAY (closed)

(You plead with a toddler to model, and somehow they end up posing with the diaper pail...)
Frugal month is winding up here on my blog with a giveaway. I didn't quite come under my $5.00 max here - this whole outfit is made of all new materials - and it cost $6.00!
The skirt is based on a skirt I made here out of one of the $2.00 Land's End t-shirts I was so excited about. (The waistband is the turtleneck from another $2.00 shirt that I'm refashioning into something else).
The legwarmers are made from ladies' knee socks (tutorial here) - $2.00 on sale at Winners.
The top is also one of the Land's End t-shirts. I've added shirring to the sleeves to make it more girly, and yes, I'll be washing off the model's cookie crumbs before mailing this out to the winner.
A whole outfit for $6.00. I'm frugal-motivated now for a new challenge!
SKIRT AND TOP ARE SIZE 2T. (LEGWARMERS ONE SIZE)
TO ENTER:
Giveaway open to all of North America. Please leave a comment below, and if your address isn't available on your blog, please leave an email address so I can contact the winner easily.
Followers can enter twice (thanks for being followers!) - simply leave a second comment. I will choose a winner via Random.org on Tuesday March 30th so I can sneak in one more frugal post before Frugal Month officially ends. Good luck!

oh this is so hilarious--i have a 19-month old who "poses" exactly like this. She already wears a size 2 so this would be such a fun outfit to put her in--and i'd be able to take pictures exactly the same way you did--with an on-the-go girl!

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

I have just stumbled upon your blog and I think I am in love! I am all about recycled sewing!!! I started with making my babies cloth diapers from old t-shirts and the obsession has grown.

No way I wouldn't follow this blog!!!

Casey said...

How cute is she? Reminds me of trying to take a picture of my daughter. Always something on her face, or something I don't really want in the background :) Still the cute kid and cute outfit draw the eye away from the diaper pail :) Sign me up.
