Round 3 of The Great Pants Recon Challenge is finally here. I’ve been using that word a lot lately, finally. That’s what happens when you take too long to post things.
Anyway, this time I was strangely inspired by the hems of the pants to whip up something pretty. Namely…
Nothing like something flowery to wear on your wrist. To make them, I just cut off the hems of the pants and cut each into two strips. I gathered them on one side and stitched the ends together. With some fabric circles for the centers and some remnants of lace they made perfect flowers. For the straps, I just cut pieces from what was left of the pants drawstring and threaded elastic through them before attaching.
Here’s the finished results. The top three are corsages, the bottom one I made into a matching broach by attaching a pin to the back.
Now up to three finished projects with one pair of pants.
And here’s what’s left of the pants.
