So I have these plaid pants (size mens 28) that I never wear.  Mostly because I don't like the way they sit on me...they go up to about the middle of my bellybutton or past it.  I've sat around for long periods of time trying to decide on what to do with them so that they don't just sit around gathering dust on my bedroom floor...but I still haven't been able to think of anything or get any inspiration or anything.  Anyone have any ideas?

Well this isn't crafty, but I'd sell them. Do you know how much punk pants cost? hahahaha

Cut off the waistband, and either use another fabric or ribbon to make a waist facing, or just zig-zag stitch over the top and have a frayed waist.

Cutting off the waistband is a fab idea. I had a pair of old-man plaid pants to "punk" up and I did that. Sure, I never got around to re-sewing the waistband, but I think it looks better with the safetypins holding it together.

Selling it's a great idea, but if you still want to wear them, cutting off the waistband's the best idea.

I have a pair of red plaid pants that i altered two years ago, and there are still safety pins holding the waistband together.

you could rip the waistband apart, and putp supsenders in.  i loooove suspenders.
