Number one son appeared yesterday to pick up his favourite pair of jeans after I had mended them for the umpteenth time. My sewing machine does a good job in darning the worn areas but I have told him that if there is a next time then it will have to be to convert them into a pair of shorts.
This reminded me of a pair of his old jeans that I had used to make into a craft tote bag. I cut the legs off, used part of one to make a base and the handles and hey presto....somewhere else to store my craft stuff. The pockets are already there so it was a relatively straightforward project.
Now what can I do with the other leg? Watch this space!!!
