I've been customising some jeans!
In my last post I mentioned my accumulation of thrifted jeans that I have long intended to turn into cut off shorts.
Well last week I had some spare time and, clearly nothing else to do, so I put my crafty hat on (can you imagine how that would look? I bet it would be covered in buttons and pom poms) and got to it!
Here are the results:
|Sorry for the over-feature of my bedspread on the blog, it really is the best background!|
These are my faves and sadly, too small for me. My good friend Clare is taking them off my hands though so they're going to a good home.
I buy all my studs from Chinese sellers on eBay. They typically take a couple of weeks to arrive but for £1 for a bagful you can't go wrong.
The leather inverted cross was made from the off-cuts off some leather trousers (also made into shorts!)
These beauties just about fit me; the dilemma being that I can't move. I'm hoping that if I get a holiday booked soon I'll have some incentive to get into them!
They were originally vintage Wrangler jeans picked up in a charity shop for £1.50.
My hoarding ways proved useful with these. I knew hanging on to the scrap of material that I once called a fancy dress costume would eventually come good...

These Levi jeans were another charity shop purchase at £2.49. The studs and fabric were left over from the American Flag jacket I made earlier...
Wish I could keep these but they're a bit too big so eBay they go!
I won't bang on about these ones as I already mentioned them in a previous post. The jeans really were the bargain of the century (okay, perhaps car boot) at just 50p!
I bought the leather trousers from eBay ages ago; they were too small then and there's no bloody chance they'd fit now! I chopped the legs off (I have loads of leather left for other DIYs) and added a single stud to the back pockets. These are currently going on eBay too.
Well, I'm DIY'd out, how about you? Have you customised anything recently?
