Thrifty Thursday-Jean Conversion

This was one of my favorite pairs of jeans.
So comfy, perfectly broken-in,
and lots of mileage on them.

They'd been well worn out, especially in the knees.
Somewhere along the way,
they stopped fitting.
I held onto them for a while, 
hoping that maybe someday I could wear them again,
even if just for around the garden on cooler days.
Then I gave it up.

They were too tight in the hip area, 
so cutting them into shorts wouldn't work.
I decided to repurpose them.
I cut off the legs and hand-sewed the legs closed.
 It's not professional, but I think it'll hold okay.

Know what it's for?
I'll give you a hint.
It's one of my favorite domestic duties.

It's a clothespin bag. 
I just need to add some sort of hanger,
so that I can suspend it right from the line.
I've got time to figure that out.
We can't use the clothesline during the summer.
It's just too humid to dry most things.
We use an indoor system during these hot summer days.
So glad I'll have a new solution come fall.
