Blue Jean Baby

Only one week left before school is out here.

Olivia is excited and ready to start the summer rolling. Just the other day, she asked if she could cut off a pair of school jeans to make shorts out of them.

I said sure, because there is nothing better than cut-off blue jean shorts for all your summer activities. It left me wondering what I could do with the cut-off leg sections. Sure enough, the internet was full of ideas.

Exquisitely Unremarkable makes it simple to create a cup cozy. All you need is the bottom leg portion of a pair of jeans.
