Do-It-Yourself Cropped Jeans

So I had these great Loomstate jeans that didn't quite look the way I wanted (picky, picky). To save $, I always hem my own. Loomstates have these cool deconstructed hems that are easy to move, but I was just feeling laaaazy, so I hacked them off, made a quick seam, and now I have a pair of cropped jeans that I wear all the time.

I do have two legs worth of organic cotton fabric left over...maybe I'll send it to the Worsted Witch, who writes an excellent green crafty organic blog, and see what she does with it.

p.s. don't these go great with my Splaff recycled tire/hemp sandals?

Got some pinking shears? You make a bunch of awesome coasters. But I won't complain if you want to send them my way :)

Cross-pollination: I think I will send them--that cool hem is too good to waste.
