The DIY t-shirt challenge that took (almost) forever.
What do you do if you received a set of cute t-shirts for your family but it doesn’t come in baby sizes? You DIY and create something cute for her of course!

I managed to save all 3 this time and even struck a deal with the Little Man to finish every grain of food and we could do some art and craft after that.
