    Step 2

    Cut 3 or 4 cotton prints (pre-wash before you cut) into 6" strips the width of the fabric.

    Turn pieces horizontally and cut again into 11" rectangles. You will need a mixture of colors and patterns for this project.

    Sew short ends of pieces together using 1/2" seam allowance. You will need a length 1.5 -2 x the length of the bottom cut on the jeans.

    Make three complete rows of colored pieces the same length. Gather each row with the gathering foot on the sewing machine along the top edge.
