Cardboard Toddler Kitchen DIY Tutorial

Our toddler loves playing in the kitchen. We are constantly finding kitchen utensils in the our couch cushions. So we decided to build her her own pint-sized version. I had seen several versions on Pinterest, both wood and cardboard. We decided to go the cardboard route to save a little money.

Refashion: Cool Blue & Polka Dot Dress

I found this vintage dress at my local Goodwill Bargain Barn for less than a $1 (they sell clothing by the pound). The pattern caught my eye. The dress fit perfectly, but the look was outdated. So I decided to refashion it. I removed the shoulder pads took off the sleeves and shortened it. Add a bright belt and Voila!
