What is most exciting about this project is the ridiculously low “cost per wear” of these used-to-be-jeans. Originally, these were purchased for my son when was 3 years old. They are a size 4T, so their intent was to be purchased big in order for him to wear them a long time. And that he did! As he grew, I cut them off to be worn as cutoff shorts last summer. Nice! (Have you realized that stores are selling cutoff shorts for about $30!?!)
Well, this summer Owen is almost 6 and can no longer wear them. BUT WAIT! Ellie is 4! The show – er um CUTOFFS – must go on!
I just love them … and wait til you see the back!
Here’s how I did it…
So once again… this project was FREE!
I used an old pair of cutoffs and scrap fabric. If you don’t have any official scraps, please please please don’t buy any fabric for this … just find something in your closet that you don’t wear anymore and cut it up! How fun!
That’s all for now.
Please remember to check out my latest venture: Austin City Craft. The blog is completely in it’s infancy, but you’ll get the point!
