Recently Ava (and Colin) began taking violin lessons. I love it, mostly because it has always been a dream of mine to play the violin, and what are kids for anyway, but to live out your dreams (kidding)
Anyway. The problem: Ava is a little small for her violin.
Citymade solution: an old t-shirt.
I cut the t-shirt in half. Folded it and sewed it into a soft piece of fabric (in a rectangle shape).
Fit under her violin on her shoulder.
I hope when she plays Lincoln Center she remembers her old mom and the t-shirt shoulder pad that started it all.
