Jeans become shorts!

At the end of 2013 D asked me if I could turn some jeans that had holes in them into shorts for him. There isn't too much to say about the process really . . . chop the legs off above the hole and hem them!

A hammer does come in useful for bashing flattening the seams in the legs where they are several layers thick  :)  And if things aren't going too well it relieves some tension  :D


I forgot to take a photo before I chopped them . . . just imagine they're still in one piece!


After they've been chopped. . . and hemmed, see above comment, "I forgot . . ." 


Methinks D had been saving them up as there were six pairs!


Strangely, he didn't want the good material  cut off bits back  :-o   I was happy as I have a few ideas for it's use . . . 

That's it! It was a fairly quick and easy job to do  :)
