I have been so busy lately with life in general. Every night of the week is filled up with running here and there. This week we finally refinanced our house, and I got the taxes done! Whew, crazy week. I still somehow managed to take a little time to myself last night and get crafty. I have been so inspired recently by a few bloggers who craft anything from baby blankets to extravagant dresses made out of up cycled vintage clothing. I always love something handmade and I typically buy most of my handmade clothing. I really like to buy new handmade clothing to wear to concerts, bit of a bad habit I think;) Well, Saturday night we are going with a fun group of friends to see Gov't Mule and the Pageant, and I have been itching to buy something. A dear friend of mine just returned my sewing machine, and I decided I would make something to wear Saturday night!!!
I totally up cycled the cutest pair of jeans! They turned out amazing and I can't wait to wear them. It was a bit of a challenge, but I completed the entire project in about 5 hours and did not stop until I was done. I knew that if I laid it down there was slim to no chance of finishing the pants by Saturday. I did put down a bottle of wine while crafting, and that can lead to lots of upside down and inside out seam ripping, but the final product still turned out adorable. I even hand sewed a few embellishments on at the end to finish the look. I am very proud of myself for starting and finishing all in one night, and I can't wait to wear them Saturday. Made by ME!
