Alex has gone through so many pairs of jeans this winter... either they've suddenly become far too short as he grows taller and taller, or he's worn through the knees.
I've been keeping the jeans, some to put away for Sofia but as they all still fit Alex around the waist, I figured I could 'upcycle' some of the jeans into shorts. With another public holiday here in Canberra I managed to find some time to give the project a go...
A few cuts, ironing of the seam and run under the sewing machine, and wa-la... four pairs of shorts!
Three of the pairs are just a plain finish, however one pair were a bit too torn around the knee so I folded the seem outwards instead. I quite like the finished look!
Alex seemed pretty happy with his new shorts, and as it doesn't mean an outlay for yet more clothing (yet), so am I!! Hopefully they last him the summer :)
Until next time x
