This post should be named How to make Redneck Thongs, but there will be more on that later.
I finally cleaned out my craft closet, again. It was bad. I had a ton of jeans I wanted to keep for the material but it was pointless to keep the entire jeans that were taking up tons of space. While cutting them up I found the best order to cut jeans and which cuts would yield the most useful material. I also found a great way to make redneck thongs for your next redneck party!
Who irons jeans? Not me… Usually. I think of the movie Cheaper by the Dozen.
Kate: [referring to Hank] He’s not a doorknob.
Jake: He irons his jeans, Mom.
Kate: Yeah that’s weird.
Cut along the seam below the waist until you get to your other cut. The pant leg should come off now.
You now have a pile of seams, some redneck thongs and a nice pile of usable jean scraps.
Now I tossed the thongs, and almost tossed the seams, but I tried weaving them together, and I might have a post about what I’m making with them later. But I’m not done yet, so it will be a few months. I’ll also have the project I’ve been saving the jeans for, but that hasn’t been finished either. If you must know why, cutting these jeans was the project I was working on while I was in labor with my baby boy. I went to the hospital fully dilated but at least my jeans were cut and put away!
