How To Create Custom Design Jeans Slippers Using Your Old Jeans Pants
In case you happen to have a pair of old and overworn customized jeans in your wardrobe, which cannot be repaired, bleached or transformed into shorts or skirt, you can still use them to create custom design jeans slippers glamorous and nice-looking.
To design custom jeans slippers well need a pair of old jeans, a piece of pressboard and a piece of any flat soft material you like flexible foam, felt, leather or even ready-made slipsoles you can buy in drug stores. Besides well need scissors, thread and a needle.
So lets get started! Well need to cut the base of our made to measure jeans slippers from the pressboard. The ideal sample for this procedure are your flip-flops. Just put them onto the pressboard and outline them using a pencil. Afterwards cut the samples out according to the lines using scissors.
Cut off the trouser legs of your subculture jeans and mark out the pressboard samples on the fabric. Cut four details from customized denim, but dont forget about seam allowances! After youve finished with this youll need to sew the details together by pairs. Well need to sew them together only halfway from the outer side, so that pressboard base with a soft sole could be put into them.
Cut out soft soles using pressboard samples or take ready made. Put the pressboard details together with soft soles into the halfway sewn together work pieces of custom tailored jeans slippers and sew them up completely.
The last procedure is quite easy and is most interesting of all. Well now need to make the upper part of our slippers. Cut off the back pockets of your custom made jeans. Cut them out totally, together with the fabric of trouser legs, in order to get the pockets in which you could afterwards put something in. We will put the base of our slippers into the pockets and stitch the base so that the cut out pockets are fixed on it and would not roll up while walking.
Thats it! As you can see, it is quite easy to transform old jeans into interesting and original jeans slippers! Jeans are versatile and can be transformed in different ways, and worn on different occasions. Harrison Ford even wore his custom jean on his wedding ceremony with Calista Flockhart on the Valentines day in 2009. Why not?
