They're the online group of Facebook mothers known for trading hacks about retail giant Kmart.

But can you spot the odd detail in this two-year-old's skirt shared with the members of the group?

A woman shared a photograph of the floral skirt to the Kmart Mums Australia Facebook page, revealing it was made from a tea towel.

'Whipped up a skirt for my almost two-year-old this afternoon using one of the tea towels I purchased recently. Could easily have made two from the one tea towel,' the mother wrote.

She then explained her transformation cost all of $3.

Mothers from the social media group were quick to praise the woman for her ingenius thinking.

'I wish I knew how to sew,' a fellow Facebook user commented on the photograph.

Another asked: 'Anyone done something similar in an adults size?'

'You could make a pillowcase dress with them as well,' one wrote.

Others described the tiny tot's skirt as 'fabulous' and 'cute'.

However this mother isn't the only one to take advantage of this incredible alternate use.

Another woman also made her daughter a skirt using a Christmas-themed flamingo tea towel, revealing she now planned to make shorts from the llama tea towel.

One mother used the flamingo tea towel to make her daughter a dress so the family could attend carols in the park.

While one woman took a unique turn and opted to make tote bags out of the tea towels instead.

She said that she used one tea towel for each of the three bags she made.
