Monster Pants

Do all boys tear holes in their knees of every pair of jeans they own?  Or is it just my boys??  PLEASE tell me it's every boy. HA!  The following pictures are of my youngest son, Kaleb's, jeans.  In an effort to keep clothes costs down, and re-use things, I decided to give these jeans a "makeover".

I found this on Pinterest a few weeks ago....
How adorable, but tough, right?

So, here are his jeans.

I didn't take pictures of the steps I did.  Sorry.   But I will try and explain it clearly.  First, I cut out some "teeth and eyes" from felt.  I then found some scrap fabric from an earlier project.  I sewed the teeth on top of the scrap fabric.  Then, I sewed the scrap fabric on the edges of the hole, inside of the jeans (so you can't see the mess).  I used floss for this.  I then sewed the eyes on with floss as well.

Here is a close up.  Best part about it?  Kaleb loves it!  And he is my VERY picky child when it comes to clothing.  So, Score!

I will be linking up to these parties.
