Shorts! Like New!!

new shorts

Someone’s favorite leggings were ruined last week in a tumble. My daughter’s eyes got real big when I pulled out the scissors and snipped off the bottoms of her pants. I hope she doesn’t get any grand ideas! With just a few more weeks of summer, we may be able to eek out a little more wear.

Using the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine, a “lettuce leaf” edge was created by pulling the jersey leggings as it was stitched. I narrowed the stitch length (.9 on my sewing machine) for a tighter hem. Volia! Shorts! Like new!

Trend: Coachella Crowns

Oh, how life has changed. It’s 9AM and I’m rocking my son to sleep for his first nap, after all, when you wake up at 5:45AM, 9AM feels like afternoon. Good time to check in on Coachella. Loving the crowns!

Since, sadly, I’m no longer in my twenties, I think a flower crown would look far better on my daughter. I’m adding it to my “make” list. Check out blog Lines Across for tutorials on how to make felt flowers.
