Like all of us, I had a pair of jeans that needed to be retired. To repurpose my jeans, I made them to shorts and customize them with some jewels. Here is the easy 6 step tutorial on how to make shorts from jeans. I am thinking I need a Round-2 on these shorts so; stay tuned!
Materials: Scissors, old jeans you are tired of wearing, sew-on jewels or buttons, matching thread, needle
Step 1: Lay down the jeans on a flat surface and cut your jeans to a desirable length - make sure to cut it 2" or so longer, if you are going to cuff them.
I hand-sew them on around the pockets.
Step 3: Sew the other side symmetrically with your preferred material.
Step 4 and 5: Fold the bottom of legs inwards in two layers.
Step 6: Put more sewable jewels on the back.
I had two remaining sew on jewels and I decided to use the couple only in one of the pockets.
Step 7: Try them on and enjoy the sunny days wearing your unique pair of shorts with a personalized touch of sparkle!
