My other pair was a bit baggy because they were hand-me-downs.
So I made the best of it and combined them, and this is what turned out.
Throughout the project, SAVE ALL OF YOUR SCRAPS!
Step 1: Gather your materials
- Two pairs of jeans you are willing to cut up
- Thread and a matching bobbin (I used denim thread)
- Sturdy sewing needle for machine and hand sewing (When you go to the store, the needle's packaging says denim)
- sewing machine, scissors, etc.
Step 2: Start cutting!
Cut open the jeans on the inside seam along the red line in the first picture.
Cut off the thick seams on the inside of the leg and the bottom of the jeans. (see the red line in the third picture).
Step 3: More Cutting
Continue cutting until you reach the main butt part of the jeans.
Now, cut along the seam in the middle (see red line in picture 3).
Fold up and cut another strip, this strip may be longer and thinner.
Repeat cutting strips with the other leg.
You will have about 4 strips per leg.
Step 4: Start sewing
Sew along the yellow line in picture 2.
Repeat this with all of the strips.
Turn the strips right side out.
You may have two long and skinny strips. You can cut these in half. (see the bottom two strips in picture 4).
