Here’s a refashion I did with a great little pair of jeans that my kid loves.

They got a hole in the knee! Since summers here, I cut them to above the knee length.

I cut one side first…

Then folded them over & matched them up before cutting the other side.

Bella wanted them to have a distressed look, so I chopped into the denim in a few places, careful not to cut into the stitching. These will fray properly after washing.

Finally, I folded the leg cuff up and stitched, and added some colorful buttons. This was a quick project that got me lots of smiles and a big hug.

  1. Hey, I’m back (kind of)! I’ve been so busy, and it’s not going to stop all summer, I’ve been terrified to even look at my RSS Feeds because I had like a bajillion unread posts!

    Super cute! I especially love the buttons on the pocket. I think I’ll need to be doing this with Miss O’s cute colorful denim. She is such a skinny little slip of a thing that anything that fits around her waist is flood pants anyway, and now that she’s been in school a lot of them are in pretty rough condition. What a fun summer makeover!
