Lace and Denim Skirt

A quick and simple project that will be used daily...well, this little girl wishes it could be worn daily, but mom insists on washing clothes. :)


 I have a whole box full of jeans that look like this:


This is what happens when you have 5 boys right in a row...We would go through jeans like they were going out of style!  I just couldn't part with them because I knew that they would come in handy for some fun projects!  So I went to my trusty Jean Box and pull out these babies!
 First, cut off the legs.


Now, lay them flat and use your scissors to make them even.





I had a piece of large lace that was lying around with my material.  Just pin your right sides together and sew!  I finished it off with a hem stitch.

Back:

A cute little girl who loves skirts, boots and horses! 


She found a pair of her brother's old boots that are too small for him and has now claimed them as her own!  She wears these boots everywhere! 


I just wish I could look as cute as that!
