Total Cost: $16
Here is how I did it! I started out with these:
I started by having the pants on and marking how far up the leg I wanted to have the fabric. Basically where I felt comfortable since the legs were so restricted. I just marked it with a pin on one side, measured, and marked it on the other pant leg the same measurement.
Now, I have NEVER used a seam riper in my life, but once I figured it out, it was super easy!! I just opened up the legs up to the point where I had marked.
Once done with that, I decided how big I wanted the leg hole at the bottom to be. I decided to use 6" on fabric at the bottom, so I cut it to measurement, pinned it at the bottom of the pant leg, flattened it out, and pinned it at the top where I had cut the pant leg open to.
I decided to use stitch witchery to adhere the cute fabric to the jeans. I measured and cut, and pinned it in place as the iron heated up.
Once the iron was ready, I followed the instructions and had a damp cloth on top of where I was ironing, and then pressed for ten seconds on each spot that needed heat. I then removed the pins and repeated the process.
After both legs were "glued" together, I trimmed the excess fabric and decided I wanted to add extra "security" by sewing the jeans a fabric together as well.
And wearing the finished product (with my fur baby Harvey photo bombing. Haha!)!!!
