Cut Off Jean Shorts and a Fun Way to Use Up the leftover Legs!
My friend, Celeste, and I got together to make our little girlies some cute summer cut-offs with the hole-y jeans. We just made them the way I did the denim aprons, with a cute piece of ruffled fabric folded over and then sewn to the hemmed edge.
Here is a little tip though...use clear thread so you dont have to switch it out for each pair!
I think they turned out oh-so cute! And I am so happy to check the first unfinished project off my list! But before I cleaned up the jeans scraps the throw away, I noticed how cute the legs under the holes were and I thought I would attemp to make a little skirt with those, instead of throwing them away.
These shorts have a black and white polka dot ribbon wrapped in a strip of tulle and then sewn onto inside of the hem. I always tuck little folds in as I sew instead of gathering it in a gathering stitch.
