Transform your Jeans into Spicy Shorts!

Spice up your Shorts
Spice up Your Shorts!

Do you have an old, but very loved pair of jeans hanging in your closet? I sure do but unfortunately, they started falling apart in the knee area. But because they are such a great fit and UBER comfortable, I re-purposed them into spicy shorts. I love lime green and the maxi piping is giving my old/new pair of shorts just the right amount of color.

It was simple enough to add the piping, and I finished my shorts in less than 20 minutes.
