zig-zag embellishment tutorial on Make It Do that I pinned a while back, and I went to town.
Upcycling and re-fashioning clothes is one of my favorite applications for my sewing skills, and while I was sorting through my clothes, I came across another pair of jeans (am I the only one that owns 500 jeans, but only wears 2 or 3 pair regularly??) that screamed "PANEL SKIRT!!" I obliged:
Seriously, though, I am not a fabric-purchasing addict. The majority of my raw fabric stash has been given to me. I prefer to spend $2 on a good quality pair of jeans at the thrift store rather than $15/yard for denim at a fabric store. Plus, it's really gratifying to see a boring old pair of jeans transformed in to something quirky and me.
