Up-cycled Denim Skirt

Here is a little tiny skirt that I made for BabyStitches with some recycled blue jeans. I found the directions at Tea Rose Home.

After I followed the directions on the blog for cutting out the skirt pieces, I called DaughterStitches to find out how long to make the skirt and how big around the waist should be. I had to cut off more than half the length or this skirt would have been dragging on the floor!

I especially loved the directions for the flowers that were given on Tea Rose Home. By using the right side of the blue jeans, the wrong side, and the part underneath the pocket, I was able to have three different colors of blue for the three flowers I put on the skirt.

I sewed them together just a little ways from the edge, so that they would fray when I washed the skirt.

And here is a cute little label I put inside, "Grandma Made It," alongside an extra, single flower.

(SisterStitches gave me these labels--aren't they fun!?!)

This marks my 100th blog post! Woo-hoo!! Wasn't sure I could last this long, but it's been almost a year now. So glad I have this blog. It's a lot of fun.


  1. I think you should make matching skirts for you and Serra, don't you?

  2. Maybe I should for Serra, but I think I can probably do without one. Thanks for the suggestion, sis!

  3. That skirt is just TOO cute!!! Congrats on your 1st Blogiversary - I just had my 1st as well! Lots of fun....

  4. Thank you, Linda, and thank you again.

  5. HAPPY 100th post!!!!
    Now, we need to see a picture of BabyStitches in it.
    :) Very cute.
