Here is my niece's Christmas gift, shhhh! Don't tell her!
Gregg came to me with torn work jeans in hand an asked (more like BEGGED) me to fix them. He also had a second pair that I could cut up and use to create the patches. I cut all the denim I could muster out of the second pair of pants, and then I was about to throw out the mess of left overs...I saw the pockets.
One of them had a small hole in the upper left corner. I just could not throw them out. I cut them out, trimming around the pocket as close to the edge as I could. Then I ran to my box o' goodies and found these super cute Precious Moments iron on patches. I trimmed the seam of one of the legs all the way up the leg until I had just enough for a strap and I added the pink ribbon bow because, well just 'cuz it's so darn cute!
I sewed the strap on by hand because it was just too much for my machine to do ALL those layers of denim! I also took some cutesy purple/teal colored paisley print material to create an inner liner. I used some Velcro for a closer and in just two hours had designed and created this adorable gift for my dear Hannah girl. She will love it, I hope!
