After making the first blue jean skirt for Rami, my beautiful and talented granddaughter, I thought I would make her a couple more! This one will be hard to credit as I used a combination of ideas from different blogs.
I cut these jeans off a bit above the crotch and then using some cloth I bought from a quilter at a yardsale, I made a bubble skirt. These are great because then you don't have to make a hem!!

These jeans had the cutest embroidered butterflies and I would have loved to have used cloth with butterflies but I only had the puppies.

 I think it was about 2 yards of cloth, I folded it in half, gathered the top edge (fold down for the 'hem') and then sewed it to the jeans and then top stitched after ironing the seam up. Pretty quick and easy and adorable!

This one is double upcycled - the cloth is from a pillow sham I purchased at another yard sale. I made it the same way - folding the cloth in half and gathering the top (not much of this cloth so very few gathers) and sewing it to the jeans and then adding a top stitch.

I mainly used instructions I found on these two sites: and
But if you google it you will see instructions and videos all over. Thanks to all those lovely crafters willing to do these how-to's for us!

Happy crafting, Millie
