Oh the Joys of teenagers, you tell them they are old enough to do their own laundry and they wash a pen with their pants.
I was not willing to just let a perfectly good pair of pants go. So I devised a plan.. I saw this on Martha she did it with cute butterflies. But I thought I’d try something different.
The pants are PINK brand (Christmas gift and not cheap, another reason to fix them). I have quite a stash of fabric that would match them but I figured that if I got fabric from PINK it would greatly increase the likelyhood that she would wear them after the fix. I wanted them to “look” like they were made that way.
So I purchased inexpensive underwear that matched at Vic’s and got to work.
I traced some chipboard stars that I had in my scrapbook stash onto Heat and Bond Light.
The cut up the underwear and ironed the stars onto the WRONG side. Cut them out, peeled off the backing and ironed them onto the pants…. (side note don’t iron over glitter.. it’s now all over my iron OOPS!) Last step…. just a simple stitch around the edge in white , which you really can’t see well here…(there is white on the butt of the pants so it matches).
The only downside to this is that I had to sew the pocket closed to get the star in the right place… but that might not be a bad thing given her history
