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?
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!
