Little red riding hood... meets viv westwood? Hopefully you get the punk vibe from the viv bits and it still fairly obvious its meant to be lil red... Its got loads of random feature on it, i got shouted at for hammering in eylets at 1 in the morning...

I didn't take before pics cuz I didn't think my creation would come to fruition. However, I'm quite happy with my little jeans skirt. I used a pair of my granddaughter's too small jeans. The skirt is made from the legs, which had vertical top stitching, like really big pintucks. I cut the legs apart and made the stitching horizontal for my skirt. Let me know what you think.. It has a zipper on the left, in this pic, the tie has it covered. I added a t-shirt waistband with a drawstring made from the hem from another t..
Here's a close up of the tie and zip..
Thanks for looking  Kiss

I might be buying the Larissa pattern, and I figured I'd try out the pattern on some old denim first!  Is everyone sick of this forum, or should we bring it back?

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

So this is the jeans stash I had to work with. I just noticed that only one pair was complete and the rest have already been hacked at  Cheesy

And heres one of the things I made from it

I just tore some jeans into 1 inch or so strips, and weaved them together. My 'method' was just to staple all the longways strips right next to each other on a piece of wood and weaved the short pieces through it. then I pinned the outside and ran a zig zag around the whole thing and badda-bing! You have yourself a nifty floor mat.

I've also made a few other things, but I haven't taken any photos. My jean stash is finally at a managable level! I'll try to take some photos of the other things I've made and post soon.

What timing! I only stumbled across this thread today, and yesterday I started a jeans recon. I'll be sure to put pics up when I'm done! It's great seeing what others have done with their jeans. I love the woven floor mat LadyJ. I didn't even think of making something non-clothing.

I'm glad I found this because I have a ton of jeans that I'm always looking to get rid of. Smiley
