Sew What's Up With Madison #1- Lacy Shorts

Welcome to Funky Cards
Sew What's up with Madison #1

As most of you know, I LOVE to sew.  When I design or create a project that I think you might enjoy I will share it with you here on my blog.  Maybe it will inspire you to dust off your sewing machine!

-Turning plain shorts into lacy shorts-

This project starts with a plain pair of shorts 
and a small bit of lace (less than shown).

 I was able to find these shorts on sale for almost 
next to nothing and they were originally $40 
(which I would never pay!!!)

The lace was cut, pinned, and sewn to one side of 
the shorts at a time.  This was done to the front 
of the shorts only.

You have to be really careful not to run over the buttons by the pockets if you have any or you will break your sewing machine needle like I did!

The second side is pinned and ready to sew.

All done.  What do you think?

How do they look?

I love them:)

Look for future Sew What's Up With Madison blog posts:)

  4. Oooh, I LOVE these! My sweet mom surprised me with a sewing machine for Christmas and I adore it.. but so far it's only been used on my cards! Hehe! Thank you for the inspiration! :o) (And I do wish I could link up my awning card, but I posted it before the CWC went live. Thankfully I'm finishing up a new card tonight so I can still play along!)

    Hugs and blessings!

  5. Oh these are amazing!! What a great job! I used to sew everyday, I made my little boys pants and pjs all the time..I altered a pair of my own jeans just the other day!!! I will have to add it if I get the chance for sure!
    I wish I had a pair of these, they are beautiful!
    Madison , you will be happy to know that the Project for Love card has been mailed to Funky Cards!
