What's Old Is New Again {GIVEAWAY}

Is there anything more comfortable than an old worn in t-shirt?  I have a few that I refused to toss until they had so many holes in them that they weren't good for anything other than dusting.  But now that my friend Melissa has started Nookie Scooter, my "vintage" Bon Jovi concert tee may have a chance at a second life - as a dress!  Take a peek at what she did with an old Tootsie Pop top.


Holy cuteness!  Nookie Scooter is full of adorable t-shirt creations and there are so many things to like about them.  First, they're all up-cycled and feature "found" tees and knits.  Second, each one is totally unique so you know you'll never see another child wearing the same one yours is.  And third, they're not just for girls!  This fun recycled tee is unisex.


And what little guy wouldn't leap a tall building in a single bound to sport one of these superhero hoodies?


But as a mom of two girls, I'll always be drawn to the darling dresses.  Love is totally appropriate for these two sparkle-y numbers.


And I can totally see one of my independent toddlers sporting this sassy one.


Melissa just started screen-printing her knits too.  This Western-inspired design would be perfect for a little cowgirl.  How fab would it be paired with a great pair of boots?


And every little princess loves a frog, especially one with rhinestones.


You can even get coordinating dresses for your little one's doll. 


Nookie Scooter has pre-made dresses, hoodies, shirts and more in the store and lots more tees to choose from.  If you see one you like, just convo Melissa and she'll transform it just for you.  The "All My Homies From the Street" shirt cracks me up.

 
If you've got a shirt of your own that holds a special place in your heart, Melissa can work with that too.  She took a fireman's tee and made it into this sweet dress for his daughter.


I may have to take a trip down to Chinatown to buy a few Italia shirts so my little princepessas can have two of these!


So what are you waiting for?  Go dig out your favorite old t-shirts and send 'em off to Nookie Scooter.  Your kid will be the coolest one on the playground rocking an up-cycled outfit made from your vintage Poison tee.  And I've got some rocking news for you! 


Melissa gas generously offered to give a $25 credit to one lucky AFOMFT reader!  You can use it toward anything currently in her store or put it toward a custom order using a shirt of your own or one from her stash.  To enter, visit Nookie Scooter and make the store a favorite.  Then post a comment here telling me you did along with what design in her shop you'll choose if you win OR what t-shirt of yours you'll send in to have transformed by Melissa (these are mandatory).  For additional entries:

  1. I just added them as my favorite on Etsy and my favorite is the Sequined Love dress or I'd send in my daughters old Black Dog shirt to make it into summer dress. I was so sad when she out grew it.
