Transformation Tuesday #60

Happy Transformation Tuesday! I've had a very long weekend--the kids were on "winter break" starting midday on Friday and they go back tomorrow. The weather was in the 50s today! Unfortunately, we're supposed to get snow again this week. That's Michigan for you!

Anyway, I have a couple of fun transformations from readers to share today... 

I've been making doll clothes for American Girl dolls for my granddaughters. I started out by buying fabric, but then realized I could get more fabric for my money by buying clothes at thrift stores. I'm really enjoying this because I had two boys and never got to have dolls around. Here are a few examples...

- Kim

Kim, these are AMAZING. At first glance, it looks like you bought doll clothes and dressed the dolls in them, but when you look at the size of the print on the clothes, you can see they are tiny little replicas. This is such a cute idea! I learned a long time ago how useful thrift stores can be for things like fabric (using clothes or bed sheets or even curtains) and zippers, buttons, buckles, etc. Your granddaughters are so lucky to have one-of-a-kind clothes for their dolls!  - Katie

I sent in my office transformation in August, so I wanted to send an update with the last piece of the "puzzle". I love jigsaw puzzles and though I’d combine that hobby with the need to decorate this office wall, so here it is! I’ve got a couple of spaces for new ones, and these just make me smile. It’s cheap, easy to hang and change, and makes me smile every time I walk in the office.

- Traci, Texas

Traci, what a fun idea! I LOVE jigsaw puzzles and I miss putting them together (my chronic pain issue makes it very difficult). I hope I'll be able to get back at it one day. I love the Texas puzzle! Using your puzzles to decorate was a great idea to liven up the wall.  - Katie

Thank you, Traci and Kim, for sending in your transformations! As always, I love seeing the transformation pics--there are so many different ways to transform all sorts of things. If you have a transformation to share, please do! Send a before photo and an after photo to me at: katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com. Make sure you include your name and a description of the transformation to share!

  1. Those doll clothes are just adorable and I love the look of the office wall. I love working on puzzles too.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
