There’s a simple fix for a child’s t-shirt that has grown too short in the arms. Cut them off, and make it short-sleeved shirt instead. Ashley from Make It and Love It did just that, but she took it a few steps further with the addition of little gathers at the sleeve hem and a scattering of bows stitched around the neck. She got the fabric to make the perfectly matching bows from the sleeves she cut off. Clever! Get the tutorial at Make It and Love It.
