OPERATION REMOTE CONTROL!

Do you have a pair of jeans to spare? Coz’ I have some ideas.

Welcome to my latest project. Actually, it was more of a mission. That’s why I named it ‘Operation Remote Control’.

So let me start at the roots of this project, that lies in a spare pair of jeans. My good old jeans have served their purpose well for many years now and I needed another pair of cut offs for a beach vacation. Time to say good bye to them.

So I sat with couple of ideas, my armamentarium on the deck, by the beach, cut the legs off the jeans, folded it twice and hemmed it there. Voila! my cut offs were ready to go. Made for holiday. Made on holiday. Have a look.

I was left with the remaining part of jeans which I saved for my experiments and it came handy at many places. This is one of the many by products of my ‘ex-jeans’.

So let me start with a holder/organiser I made.

When I first came to my husband’s house, I was baffled by the number of gadgets I found, around me. Each one had its own remote and I had a tough time finding the right one at the right time. And I wished I had a remote control to locate them all and also to bring them to me! (thats too much of wishful thinking). But I found a solution for this in my pair of jeans!

This is what I did. I took a..

I kept the fold I used to make at my ankle, on this jeans intact.

With the basic pouch ready, it was time to perk it up a bit. So I took these…

Some more perking up needed therefore I used pink felt patches, green thread for embroidery, two pale pink buttons, a pair of scissors…

Everything is under control now πŸ™‚

Don’t forget to add a small piece of cardboard at the bottom to make it stand. I used this to have ‘my situation’ under control but you can use this to hold your everyday items or whatever needs some organizing.
