We gently removed the lace from any of our old clothes, curtains, or linens. Ages 7 and up. You need: Plain Denim Shorts 8" of 3" Lace for Pockets 3' of 2" Lace for legs No-Sew Fabric Glue Instructions:Wash and iron lace. Glue a piece of wide lace to the top each of each pocket of the shorts. Turn shorts inside-out. Run a bead of glue along a portion of the bottom of the leg. Press lace into place. Continue gluing and pressing lace into place until done.

My daughters have so many jeans that are too long for them. This would make a great excuse to cut them off this summer. I've been picking up lace and trim remnants so it should be easy to decorate. Thank you for sharing this fantastic idea!

Another brilliant tip my friend , when my 2 granddaughters were small I used to do this for them when denim shorts or a favourite skirt got too short , I used to get wide white broderie anglaise ( looked lovely on denim ) and sew that to the bottom , looked lovely and made them a bit longer too xxx

Kathy we also add peices of broken jewelry ...shiny stones etc around the pockets.Also if an old tshirt has a cute embriodered animal you cut it out and sew it to the back pockets. Thanks for the jean hints...We haven't used lace yet but I save it.If I'm throwing something away I strip it of any reuseable items..buttons,zippers,lace,trims,decals,if the fabric is thin is some spots but ok in other I will cut some squares for my crazy quilts and throw it in the bins for later use. oxoxo

i used to do this when i was a little child i still think it makes a cool project to do i just do not have that much time to dedicate to doing it anymore i used to use old pieces of scrap fabric that my grandmother had left over from making her quilts i have used fabric glue before and it works wonders i was amazed at how fast and strongly it held together i used to glue and sew the fabric onto shorts, jeans, shirts, i even decorated my dogs sweaters haha
