My youngest daughter has the problem of being quite slim for her age and her jeans always seem to get too short before they get too tight around the waste, so I have been trying to think of things to do with them, so they don't get thrown out when they have plenty of wear in them.

Here a re two ideas I have come up with so far.







The only problem is I really don't know what to do with the legs I cut off.  Seems a shame to waste the denim.  Any ideas?

Nice. My daughter has the same problem. I've cut trousers into shorts for her, too, but yours are much cuter. I've also added ruffles at the bottom to extend the length a bit. As for the leftovers, I don't know. Patchwork denim purse/bag?

Cute Smiley  The extra denim makes a great patchwork blanket for outside.  The denim is nice and thick and helps keep you dry plus it's a nice insulative layer Smiley
