I was asked to recycle a piece of textile during this course. My son had out grown the trousers – Ideal opportunity. I cut the legs from the trousers, unstitched the crutch seam so everything laid flat, but still the same boring boy colour, time for dyeing. I didn’t dye the cut off legs just the body of the ‘skirt’, once this was done I set about finishing the bottom off with a close satin stitch. Then added painted, stitched flowers, these where made from the left over legs. Another use for a pair of tatty boys jeans.
