My Fav Baby Denim Re-born...

I bought this denim for my son when he was 4 months old and after 3 months it was already short on him, but i loved it and wanted to do somthing with this, and yesterday i did ;)

Before and After Pic

 Ikea cloth piece from As-is, worth 10 Dhs.

sew each length wise, making them double.

Attaching extensions with denim, with needle & thread.

  1. Oh this is such a cool idea! I have at least 4 pairs of jeans of my son's. he is 2.5 yrs old and growing up like a weed...because he looks so cute in denims i keep buying them and in 3 months time they are too short again! Im going to try this off to festival centre tpday and picking up some material. Then I shall be off to karama and ask my wonderful tailor to fix them all. I dont have a sewing machine at home, else it would have hardly cost me anything na!
    Loved this idea...thanks for sharing.
