Well dear readers, it’s been a busy Fall. I have been settling in a new job (which I am loving) and starting to pack up my home as I start the relocating process (which shockingly I am not loving…).

Here is a quick way to recycle an old pair of jeans as seen in my previous post:
1. Take an old pair of jeans, preferably a boot-cut or wide leg shape. Skinny jeans are too tight around the thigh for the shorts to be comfortable and look good, particularly if you are not hemming the ends.
2. Measure the desired length of the leg. You will want to keep the back a little longer than the front and take into account how you intend to finish the shorts; if you want to role up the ends, leave a few extra inches to do so.
3. Cut at a slight angle. If you want the ends to be frayed careful measuring is all you need to do.
