The creative girls at Making More With Less are hosting Mending Week, so I'm joining in! My mending pile is smaller this afternoon after finishing 5 mending/upcycling projects this morning. Up first was a too short/holey jean upcycle into a new skirt. I used the little tutorial from Becky's Craft Closet as a guide. Instead of applique, I added bias trim edging to the bottom and front & back pockets.
Abby refused to wear these overalls but really liked the dress I made Mally with her outgrown overalls last month. Running with the same idea, I cut the overalls off to shorts length then opened both inner leg seams so I could easily add a twirly skirt and appliqued patches. After finishing the skirt and appliques, I stitched the leg seams back together for a twirly skort overall. I think she'll love them!
