Creative Jean-ius

I've got two more pairs of pants to finish for our PPR Party tomorrow!


I'm taking a quick break to show you some highlights of the girls' designs.


As I've sewn each one, I can really see how each of the girls' personalities have come through.


Like Moe, for instance,


Moe is ten years old and our budding author.


Moe understands the power of words.


And then there's Shannon. Shannon didn't seem constrained and was able to think outside the box. This "measuring tape" was in a straight line and Shannon chose to "bend" it -- to great effect, I think.

She also took this "zipper" and made a little three dimensional "brooch" with fabric scraps -- too cute!


But, I'll never forget how we all couldn't stop giggling when Shannon decided to put fireworks on the back of her pants -- you know, like, coming out of her butt.... *giggle


This has been such a fun project, but if I ever want to create NINE of something again-- shoot me. Production is not my thing. But visions of tomorrow keep me charging forward...


Speaking of vision, I'm beginning to have vision problems...


I'm seeing Peace Signs everywhere I look...



Peace out!

Nine of these is a lot, but the girls will never forget you for making these pants with them. Enjoy finishing up.

Susan, you are one cool auntie! Your nieces are very lucky to have you to encourage their creativity. How'd your one gal do the white writing? That intrigued me....loved the little frog. And peace signs...now there's a stellar idea if only the grownups would make it happen! Have a great time tomorrow, and take tons of photos.

Groovy!

Nine of anything is mind boggling. I think I once made 4 of the same teddy bear. About killed me to make that fourth one! Argh!

Susan, you have to admit that you had one heck of a good time putting these together! Thanks for posting so many pics. I'm in the sorting stages and should get it going this weekend. Sheesh, this is harder for me than I thought it would be.

Great fun! (and the jeans should take care of birthdays for the year, IMHO!)

Jeans, flowers, coolness, and you wonder that you see Peace signs everywhere?
They are all so cute!
I guess you would not do a 10th pair for me? Gosh, I'll have to make mine myself then, sigh... :-)
