I bought a pair of pants at Old Navy last Easter weekend when we were at the Mall of America. They fit cute on top but had these long, huge legs that weren't working for me. I got them anyways because they were like $6 and I knew I could cut them off. The problem was...the cuffs were my favorite part of the pants! They folded up to reveal this pretty pale blue fabric that looked so cool against the grey of the pants. sigh. But cut them off I did. I saved those cuffs, though, and also this weird tie thingy that had been around the waist band. (I don't really need to worry about my pants falling off. ha!)
I'm kidding, but it was fun.(the pants & tote together, just in case you missed what was going on here)
What trash or scraps have you turned into something cool? Do tell!
