Old Jeans, New Skirt(s)!

I came across these over at the Barn Hop...lots of neat ideas there, but you can check this fabulous idea out along with its how to's HERE! I went COO-COO for these adorable recycled jean skirts! Let me just give you a brief history about Cassie and jeans...well, lets just say that Cassie and jeans have issues...big issues! She has the length of a 5T, but the waist of on average a 2T! Some of her shorts are actually pants she wore when she was 18-24 months old! Her waist is that tiny! SO...with this new, awesome, and VERY thrifty idea, I decided to venture into the attic where we keep EVERYTHING...need to remedy that soon (or NOT)...pulled out some pants that I knew fit her waist but no longer fit in length and I started cutting!

Here's skirt #1! My fabric is dwindling away! I almost made this fat quarter into napkins...I'm SO glad I didn't!

Here's skirt #2! The tag on these says 24 months and she still needs a belt! I have bean pole babies!

This one was her favorite...can you tell?! I'm working on a coverall one now...I'll show that when it's all done!


  1. LOVE IT!!! Did you have one of those "Why didn't I ever think of that?" moments!!!
