Upcycled Jeans

I am LOVING this.

It all happened quite by accident. As you know, I recently started an Etsy store, which has been getting a bit of attention (yeah!). Someone asked me if I could turn one of my designs into a jean jacket for a little boy…

…it never hurts to try!

And that’s how I came up with this. I love, love, love, love, love this jean jacket! No, it is clearly not for a boy. Boys just aren’t my niche when it comes to clothing – I’ll have to keep trying when it comes to that. But isn’t this just the cutest upcycled denim jacket for a little girl?!!

Upcycled from a single pair of DKNY jeans. Which makes me love them all the more! I love turning something old into something new, giving it brand new life!!!

Have I mentioned how much I love this jacket?!! Lol. I can’t wait to try new designs!

Sorry, there will be no tutorial on this. I wish I could! But until I figure out this dang software…

    Your store is getting a TON of views! Woohoo! As soon as Sienna is walking, we’ll be all over that Puddlejumper jacket, this cute jean jacket, and, naturally, a tweed jacket :)
