Make It Monday
It has been too long since I last posted a craft or DIY-ness. So, to keep myself dedicated to always at least doing something crafty. Mondays are now, Make It Monday. Today I have tackled my lovely sweat pants.
I bought these sweat pants thinking they were so cute. That I might actually be able to wear them outside once in a while. You know, like when I go to drop off the babes at preschool, or run to the grocery store. Or perhaps, to the gym. If I ever got around to getting a pass, and then using. Anyway, I had great plans for these pants, they were going to be a staple in my hottie mom wardrobe. They were the perfect fit. Then, I washed them, and first time in the dryer, boom, they shrunk. Well great. Now I couldn't wear them anywhere, except around the house. I was super disappointed.
Obviously, seeing that I am blogging about it.
To find the perfect length, for me, instead of putting them on, and then trying to bend over and mark just the right length, or measuring, I took the easy slash smart way out. I got out a good pair of capris, that I like the length of. Laid them over my pants, and just cut straight across.
They were not the same length. They were about an inch off.
I am so glad that I don't have to throw these out, give them away, or be embarrassed to wear them.
Here's to breathing new life into old clothes!
