Patching Things Up


Most moms this school year will be forking out good money
for "pre-worn" jeans. I mean honestly the jeans in stores today are ridiculous.
In our home we call these holly abominations"Farmer Pants"
for goodness sakes why not get a little work our of your kids
and let them wear out their own jeans over the summer.
It's a two for one if you ask me.


But my little kiddos were quite ready to throw out this holly pair this morning
so I decided to try and give them a bit of a makeover


Surprisingly enough fabric yoyos were not my first thought
but once I finally gave up on finding my leather scrap stash
yoyos were of coarse the obvious choice.
It's not exactly like I don't have a plethora of them lying around the house. 


After Stitching around the yoyos I added a few crochet flowers
that I purchased from Tokyo Alice 


I think for a 15 minute makeover they are a smashing success
& will stylishly get the girls through another year of school.
