By micro craft, I don’t mean tiny. I just mean fast and simple! This was so simple that I did it while I cooked noodles and carrots for dinner.
I found this project about 5 years ago. Yesterday, I was looking through my bookmarks on my ancient PowerBook G4, Frankie, and came across this link. (Thanks for making me think of that, Mel. I was supposed to be studying!) I nearly made it a year ago and decided I needed to stop dawdling. There was a pair of my dad’s old jeans in the donate pile… the stars aligned.
A pair or two of jeans (no stretch)
I measured 6 inches for the with of the roads because that is what the link I had said and I felt trusting. I made some 14 inch long straight pieces. Then, I used two crossed over to trace and make two intersections out of the back thighs that were the biggest part of material. Next, I got fancy and made a cure with a compass on paper and drew out a pattern piece.
I had to hand the pieces over as soon as they were cut and he has played with them a few times already. They slide around a bit on the wood floors. I may add nonskid stuff underneath and just sew it together. I’m undecided. I will definitely be painting lines on them and be waiting for a second pair of jeans to use.
