A De-Pantsing

A couple of days ago I found Handy Andy's pants in the trash. What!?! Why would he do such a thing? Why? He obviously has not been to visit Kimm @ Reinvented. Had he done so, he would not have tossed out his pants so fast. So, I pulled them out and washed them. Just so I could cut them up for Trash to Treasure Tuesday.
I even removed the inseam and pockets.
I had been wanting to make Ashely's water slings from Make it and love it for some time. Denim was perfect for the project. It was sturdy enough I was able to skip a few steps. They will look even better after I wash them and the edges fray.
Ashley's tutorial was very easy to follow and if it was easy for me you should be able to do it in your sleep. ( mine are a little taller than Ashley, because I didn't hem the top.)
What to do with the inseam and pockets? Well....
I made a pocket purse of course.
It's a pocket. It's a purse. POCKET PURSE!

I have a whole pile of old jeans waiting for a project and my son is going to 5th grade camp in a couple of weeks. This would be perfect for him! Thanks!

Good job Missy!

I have a request for you! Would you please do a tutorial on how to make curly ribbon for hairbows?! That would be FANTASTIC!

I like the water bottle sling. I have an oversized resuable water bottle that's difficult to tote around. This would be perfect!

Great idea! I wish I knew how to sew. These would be SO great to take to theme parks. :o)
