Here's a quick update to a previous post about how to repurpose the inseams on old blue jeans. I think I found the style that screams "Claudia."
No, this isn't it. This is one that took lots of work but is a little too flirty for me.
I sewed red and silver seed beads to the top of the thin denim strip. Then I created 17 short dangles and sewed them to the strip's lower edge. It reminds me of a 20s flapper dress. But I worry that the dangles will get tangled in my shirt or whatever I happen to walk by.
Here's the bracelet I like best.
It loops around my wrist twice. To get a strip long enough, I used the seam from the back of the jeans, where the fabric below the waistband meets the top of the legs. I added small rivets and a black snap.
It's simple with a touch of punk. Just like me!
