These are my granddaughter’s faded/worn jeans which still fit at the waist but are no longer the right length. They have quite a bit of wear at the knees and at the hem line; can you guess what I plan to do with them? If you are a regular reader I bet you know what I am going to do or at least you think you do, you may be right.
Time to audition some fabrics I thought my granddaughter might like; she is crazy about anything with blue in it. I went to my fabric wall and pulled out some fabrics with the same chocolate brown as the pants color. Most of what I chose had some variation of blues in it except one fabric which featured browns, pinks and oranges in the pattern. Which one do you think I chose to go with the pants??? I guess you will just have to wait and see which fabric I picked and what I did to re-purpose the pants.
This blog post is short on purpose; I joined the August Break inspired by Susannah Conway who began the bloggy break program last summer. It was a program designed for bloggers so they could take a break during the hectic month of August. So many writers are busy getting their children ready to go back to school, taking last minute vacations, getting ready for fall quilt/gift markets or they are swamped with deadlines for books or pattern releases. I am personally getting ready for a trip to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, a new website and some pattern production deadlines. Since I did not want to leave my blog unattended I chose to go with short/quick posts or photos depending on what is going on. You will see where I am or bits of what project I am working on. You can also track me on Facebook if the blog post is not enough. While I am away on my trip I will have a guest blogger filling in for me at least once, it will be lots of fun to see what someone else writes for me. You may still see full posts and tutorials during the rest of the month as I find time to fit one in here and there, otherwise you will get shorter versions.
Thanks for letting me share part 1 of the Girl’s Pants to Skirt post and August Break, keep watching for part 2 as well as other project snippets.
See you soon.
