So what did I do last Sunday?

Well I had these

which were a bit worn
a few little holes
not much good as shorts because of where the holes were too high up
so I turned it into this

I'm not much of a seamstress
Frequently take short cuts
Make do will do
Perfection not required

And more importantly this was only required for house-wear

Bring on the warm weather

Did I mention that last Wednesday it was 25C!!!!!
Pity it went back to 17C the next day


  1. I LOVE your handywork!!!! So clever! I have to have a go and make a skirt myself. Well done :-)

  2. great conversion - or is it a renovation ?

  3. What a wonderful idea! I have several pairs of jeans lurking around. You always do great things Maria! I love the baby feet cloth...

  4. Groove on. I remember doing this back in the 70s to some old overalls. Fun project for your spring/summer to come.

  5. Graet skirt !! I hope if it getting warmer your end it's going to get cooler here. Can't wait..

  6. I love the skirt Maria - that is very thrifty of you and denim is quite hard to sew isn't it. We are on the downward slide to winter ugh!

  7. Thats recycling if you like :)) well done.. I have just moved my craft room and wished i hadn't started... it will take me the next week to find anything LOL..

  8. Wow! What a wonderful idea Maria!
    I hope you are having a good weekend,
    always nice to visit you Down Under!

  9. Very clever Maria, recycling at it's best.. :))
