Old Jeans + New Lace =Denim and Frills
Over lap your lace a bit to make sure you have enough, then pinch the excess together and either pin it and run a zig-zag stitch through it or cheat on the serger like I did.
Fold over your excess lace(there should only be a little) and pin it onto your jeans, completing your circle.
Now stitch the lace onto the jeans. I would suggest changing out your needle to a 'jeans' needle if you have one. If you don't just say "bibbidi bobbidi boo" and pretend you just changed it with your magical powers.
Now you can press the lace under so that the raw edges are hidden on the inside (or wrong side) of your jeans. Be sure to really press this good,it will help in the next step.
That's it. You are done! Your little ones now have shorts, not 'wholly' jeans.
When I told Shenna about this little project she pulled a huge box out of her garage for me. I guess I have some work to do. I also plan to try this using fabric scraps that I will essentially turn into thick bias tape, so be sure to like us on Facebook so you can see how that works out for me. Thanks for stopping by, now go dig through the drawers and turn some of your jeans into shorts.
