This summer’s dressed-down dress code is all about the shortall trend.  Do your denim a favor by adding some colorful flair for yourself and the little ones in your life! We're excited to team up with Old Navy for a DIY that lets fashionistas get crafty with colorful vibes. Five of our favorite mommy bloggers have been challenged to show us how they customize their Old Navy basics with materials from our coveted craft closet. Stay tuned to see how Lady & Prince,  Cakies,  Ivory LaneHither and Thither, and Ramshackle Glam personalize their gear- we’re PSyched!   To create: Trim one end of a friendship bracelet with scissors. Place a piece of permanent fabric tape along the back of the bracelet; trim off any excess tape. Peel the back of the fabric fuse then place carefully along the strap of your shortalls. Repeat to the other strap. Tack down with a few stitches for extra security. Create fun embroidered moments with a needle and embroidery thread. Stitch in the shape of X’s, triangles, arrows and stars. Add wrapped accents around the seams of the pocket and belt loops to tie in all the embroidered moments.
