My sweet children seem to wear holes through every pair of pants they own in the same week. This past week was Abby's turn. We bought her a couple of new pairs for school, but I couldn't bring myself to tossing her favorite old pair. Since I'm not really "in" to the whole "wear clothes that look like they are about to disintegrate" movement, we decided to patch them up. Lovely Lindsay donated various fabric scraps for our cause and this is what Abby decided she liked best. Orange polka dots mixed with birds and royal blue stitching. I have to say, I was a proud mama at her color coordinating skills. These darling patched up jeans took about 10 minutes to finish and It has been requested that I "fix" her 3 other holey pairs. Here's to happy stitching. Oh, and Happy St. Patty's day!
