Unfinished Projects~Cut off Jeans Shorts (and what to do with the leftover Legs!)

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.

These shorts just have ribbon folded over and sewn to the bottoms.  I happened to have some ribbon that matched the flowers that were already on them!
These shorts are my favorite!  Celeste and I both made some like this for our girls.

The Jean Leg Skirt!

 This is the Jean Leg Skirt!  I cut the legs of the jeans off below the holes and then I cut the seams of the jeans about 1/2 inch outside of the topstitched side.  That way the cute topstitching on the jeans still showed on the skirt after it was sewn together.  I also tried to alternate the washes light and dark.  The pink knit ribbing was purchased by the inch at Jo-Ann fabric.  This skirt is perfect for her to pull on with a swimsuit and wear to the pool!
