I have a pair of jeans with a huge rip in the knee. I like the rip, although I think it’s a bit too large. In an effort to get out the door quickly I used some large safety pins inserted from the inside of the leg so that just the silver bands showed, looking somewhat like giant staples.
Later in the day my bracelet broke and I ended up with a handful of silver beads. H-mmm! I have an idea!
Now I’d say that’s making lemonade out of lemons – one big rip + one broken bracelet = Irish Attic designer jeans.
