My favorite pair of jeans …. are totally ripped, destroyed at the inner seams… I need to retire them. I hate to do this when only the area of the thighs are out and the rest of the fabric looks in pretty good shape. I paid a lot of money for these pants, and the fit was very flattering. But I had to let them go… so I researched online what I could do with them. Since my daughter and I already made a cloth bag, I think I could try these videos I found to turn my old jeans into a denim skirt. The only part I am not happy after finishing this project is that I wanted a clean finish for the seams in the middle. I hope I can improve my finish with another pair of old pants.
I wished I could have seen this video before, but oh well… you live, you learn… GiannyL is awesome! her method is very intuitive, and she shows here how to turn your jeans into a skirt. There are gazillion videos out there that I am sure will help you and this is one of the easiest ways to recycle your jeans.
