Wardrobe Repurpose part IV?,or...Just Felt Like It part II?

Had these pants that I didn't want. You know the pants that you think you love when you buy them, but then you never wear them? They just don't seem to look quite right? Well this pair is one of those. They sit there un-used,...and then there is guilt. (Hate the guilt.) So I thought it was time to experiment. I unpicked the seem right up the middle, and used the lower legs as inserts to create a skirt.

Then I OF COURSE used one of my favorite things (felt) to make lots of embellishments. I used 'Liquid Stitch" to glue them all down and then tacked them here and there with thread just to be on the safe side.

Now I have a skirt that I will actually wear. (YAY!! bye bye guilt!!:)) And....it was a surprisingly fun project.

Holly, Holly, I want a skirt like that too! Now I will look through my old pants and see if I can be as skillful with some of them as you have been here.
Thanks for the never ending inspiration!;))

It's a fabulous transformation, I love the skirt with the flowers.

I was thinking about doing this to one of Samie's pair of pants that she put a hole in the knee in, now you've inspired me to actually do it!
Very cute!
