Crafty Mamas... Maternity jeans

Hi all. I wanted to share a great link that I used to make some super cool maternity jeans. I was getting pretty depressed for a bit there because I didn't have any pants to wear to work. It was getting to the point of washing a pair of pants after work so that I could make sure they were clean for later in the week.

Yay! I'm so glad someone was able to use the link!! I made three pairs already and plan to make 3 or 4 more so that I have plenty! The jeans look awesome. I made a pair with a white top just like those. ;)

I made my first pair of maternity jeans this morning. I never thought I'd be so excited about a pair of maternity jeans....and I love that they actually fit me! I'm a little ways from using the band but can't wait to use them when the time comes! Forgot to take before pictures but here are a few after ones.

I'm so excited to try this! I already found a pair of jeans and a tank top I can use! I'll try to remember to post some pics of my before and after!

Thanks for posting, I may have to get my Mom to help me with this kind of project since I can't thread a sewing machine lol but If I pick up a pair of jeans at the goodwill I can try this.
