Pinspired Cut-Offs

I'm sure you've all seen these cut-offs on pinterest and we've probably all pinned them:

They're super cute right?!?  You can check out the tutorial from To Die for DIY or you can just wing it like I did.

I couldn't remember which board I pinned the project onto so I was just going from memory.  At first I was going to use a doily but it looked too much like a spider web to me so I quickly switched to some stretch lace.  I just clipped a triangle and sewed it on.  I didn't even cut away the jeans underneath.  Maybe later, I'm not sure yet.

It's a super easy project that will get you lot's of compliments like "Those are so cute!".

My tip for making cut-offs....I like to use a pair of jeans that are 1-2 sizes bigger than what I would normally wear and I cut them so that when they're folded the side bottom hem is straight.  If you try to cut them flat with the front facing up you'll get some pretty wonky looking cut-offs when you put them on.

Keep on crafting!  The promised tutorial for the Summer Two Piece is coming on Friday so make sure to check back to learn how to make your own~

They're cute! What a great way to ease a tight leg if they were to be cut at the seam.....
