(kinda) new clothes

But wait for the best part! I found a pair of pants that the cut was a little out of style, but the top still fit great. So I cut them into jean shorts! Most gratifying project I have done in a long time, since it was 75 degrees and sunny yesterday, so I got to wear them while we ran a couple errands in the afternoon.

My 6-year-old self really wants to decorate them with puff paint, like the awesome shorts I had back in the day…
