Those of you who know me, know to say I am clumsy is an understatement!
Well a few weeks ago I surpassed even my self, we left the house to go and meet some old friend,
and I managed to fall over my own feet (wearing flats) right out side the house......knee was a mess,
but annoyingly so were my jeans. And I live in my jeans,
but I also value them as they are hard to find when you need 34 inch leg.
So I was very very cross with my self.
It was a brilliant night even with an ooozy bloody knee (sorry).
And the next day I thought can I save my jeans.
So I trimmed the hole, and raided my stash of denim. I have never binned any old jeans,
I have always though I could do something with them, maybe a large picnic blanket,
(but I must have about twenty old pairs).
I found a good stripey piece from an old pair of M&S jeans, when I had worn them they made me feel like I was wearing pajamas! But they were perfect for a star.
I cut the star a little larger so there was enough to turn under,
it's then pinned over the hole and hand stitched it into place.
Really pleased with how it turned out, I think its really given these jeans a new lease of life.
Though when I am looking down it does look like a star fish has attached itself to my knee!
So every cloud does have a silver lining,
oh and knee has know healed so I am back in the sea swimming again, heaven.
