A Pinteresting Wednesday: Frayed Cut-Off Shorts

Do you have a wild, running willy-nilly, noise-maker, knee scrapping, jean ripping, bundle of energy?

Also known as a Little Man...

Well it is no secret that I have three said Little Men and one teeny tiny Little Man in training. So it is not surprising that I have a whole pile of jeans missing some much needed fabric around the knees. 

I tell you what, I am getting tired of seeing my boys walk in with yet again another hole in the knee.

Not sure why I kept them because jeans are hard to repair and still have look nice. But kept them I did.

How happy was I when I came across this tutorial on Make it and and Love It

So happy!

I immediately pinned it to my Project To-do Board.

I went from a couple of pairs of ratty-tatty jeans to a couple of sweet pair of frayed cut-offs


I mean it.

All I had to do was cut off the end of the jeans, making sure the holes were gone. Then I ran a stitch around the end 1/4" up from the frayed end. Then I threw the shorts in the washer and the dryer to get the fray going. To finish them off I just cut off the long strings.

Then I put them on the coolest eight-year-old I know.

He is still my rough and tumble, knee-scrapping Little Man.

However, now he is rockin' a pretty stylish pair of frayed cut-off shorts instead of a ratty pair of jeans.

Yup he is pretty gosh darn cute.

Happy Pinning everyone!

He is so cute! We are big fans of the cut-off, especially since my 3-year old grows out of jeans in like 3.8 seconds.

I lived in cut offs in the summer when I was a teen/pre-teen. They were what all the *cool kids* wore.
Made my 12 yr old kidlet his first pair a few days ago. He looked at them and looked at me.

I don't know if he'll wear them or not. I may have to hide all his other shorts to force the issue. LOL!
