|Denim math: 1 Pair of Jeans = 1 Pair of Shorts + 1 Skirt
Iron Craft time again! This challenge was "Denim" and I'm sure you can guess what that means. I had to sew. Well, really it means that we had to make something from denim, but to me it meant sewing. And, yes, I poked myself repeatedly with the needle. And, yes, I'm still terrified of my sewing machine, so this was done by hand.
My daughter has hit a growth spurt, so several pairs of her jeans still fit her around the waist, but are way too short. I decided to cut off a pair, naturally. I was left with the two legs and being the craft hoarder that I am, I kept them. When this challenge was issued, I was prepared (for once).
|No making fun of my sewing skills!
The denim is stretchy, which I think is probably pretty important in this project. All I did was cut the seams as close as I could get, which left me with two squares and only two seams to sew. I left a bit of a vent area at the bottom of the back. I then sewed a seam at then top and then sewed a piece of elastic at the back and two darts at the front.

I really, really need to learn how to use my sewing machine.
