I'm all for re-using, recycling, re-purposing, and any other 're-s' out there!
So here's a very simple one - cut off jeans.
Little Miss Blue's jeans had already been patched with an applique heart and then another hole grew.
She already has a pair of raggedy denim cut offs so I thought I would make a cuff out of a fabric from a cotton pillowcase.
I was happy and she likes them - what more can you ask for?!
As for the cut off bits they were put in a little pile of denim cut offs I have growing.
So I knew just where to turn when my own jeans got a hole!
Along with a circle cut out of stripy denim from Little Miss Brown's cut offs
(which were 2nd generation hand me downs!)
they made quite a pretty patch I thought
(with somewhat wonky beginner's free motion stitching)!
I love it when clothes have a story to tell. xx
