Maggie taught me the concept.
You take bits and pieces of existing clothing to
make something new.
I had these great pajama pants but due to
a company policy that demanded employees wear pajamas to work,
the bottom of this pair of pants got so beat up from outside wear
that no amount of bleach was ever gonna fix them.
And before you get all, what a great gig,
you get to wear PJs to work,
it gets old.
Oh, and it was a pajama store.
Anyway, not one to throw anything away,
one might recognize bits and pieces
(or long strips)
of Maddie's First Birthday dress.
Not taken from the dress itself, just the
bits and pieces I had left over.
