The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 301 - Tablecloth into long shorts

Finished today's project with only a couple of hours left in the day. This could be one of my more out there creations.

I used a vintage tablecloth I found at a garage sale a year or two ago with a few small holes in it to make some long shorts or 3/4 pants. For the back I matched it with some brown corduroy from my craft cupboard.



Me. What do you think? I little too crazy? I'm loving the colours and they are definitely one of a kind.


  1. Well, uh,um...ok, they look good on you, they fit you well, the colors go nicely together.

    I have to ask you something. Lots of the pants you make for the kids have two different fabrics on them, just like yours do, here. Is this something you've come up with on your own, or is it a style in Australia? I've never seen it done before, and I'm really curious.


    1. LOL. Not sure how much wear they'll get but you only live once so why not? No particular Aussie style Joyce, I just do it for fun to create a little contrast, mostly if I am using chenille or a crazy vintage. In this case I only did it because the tablecloth wasn't big enough to make pants.
