Description

I love upcycling! I’m saving the earth one recycled item at a time. I used an old pair of jeans that became to short for my niece, and recreated it into a very full skirt. My specialty is creating custom/unique items. Blair’s instructions were that she wanted a “Buzzing Bee”, so I searched through my library of embroidery designs and found a buzzing bee. It was originally a black eyed susan, but I changed it to a daisy by simply changing the colors to a pallet that mached the print on the fabric that I chose. I opened the crotch seams of the jeans and sewed them flat. Next I did the embroidery. After that, I cut off the the excess Jean legs. I added two coordinating fabrics to make the very full skirt. I like to add a D-ring belt with the same fabric as the skirt. I think it makes it all come together nicely.

Material Notes

A pair of jeans, light weight cotton print, machine embroidery and two D-rings
