Pants and a purse

Kevin ripped a pair of his khaki pants and there was nothing to be done to save them. So I used them to make Caroline pair of khaki pants.


When I finished, they looked a little plain, so I added this eyelet ruffle trim to the hem. Pretty cute and girlie, don't you think? Pictures of her modeling them coming soon... (She runs away squealing in terror when I approach her with fabric. It's sad, so I try not to terrorize her before the project is complete.)


And this is Caroline's Halloween "purse"! She loves it and I'm pretty proud of it, too. It will be perfect for all those Halloween goodies from the neighbors. I think there's another one coming...maybe something feline? I got instructions from this website: J Caroline Creative.

That purse is the cutest thing ever! And, that website is so jazzy, I need to break out my sewing machine that I got for Christmas years ago.

Oh, I forgot to comment on the pants... they are precious too, and who would have recycled like that? Wow.. I'm just amazed.

Great idea! Hmmm - maybe I could use some of the pants Ryan's outgrown . . .

You are so crafty it makes me sick (in a good way, of course). I am totally in awe!
