Spring up your cut-off jeans Get those jeans ready for Spring. Do your kids have jeans that look like this? My girl’s, pretty much, crawl around on their knees. Recycle and make the most of what you’ve got. Cut your jeans…as long or as short as you want. Get your fabric, pom pom fringe and ric rac. Fat quarters are perfect for this. Measure across, then double it and add 2 inches…or so. I cut my fabric 14″ Long x 6″ Wide. Fold in half lengthwise and iron. Fold one side to the crease line and iron. Do the same with the other side. Should look like this. Then attach to the bottom of your jeans with pins…like a cuff. Half goes underneath and then comes up over. You’ll have to remove a part of the machine in order to fit the leg on. I added the green ric rac as I sewed. When you get all the way around, make sure to sew up and down where the seams meet. You can spring up the ends of skirts…or make yourself some capri’s. Have fun!
