Jeans to skirt and hair flower

I needed some skirts to wear and love denim, but good jean skirts seem hard to find when you are looking for them.  I had older Levis pants.   I was so intimidated by ripping out the inside seam in the jeans.  Once I got started, it wasn't so bad.

Warning: Bad quality cell phone pics!  :)

It is an A-line skirt.  I trimmed the bottom off and pieced in the panel.  I frayed the edge and ran two lines of stitches above where I cut it so it won't fray past that part.

It has turned out to be one of my most comfortable skirts now.  Didn't cost anything since I used what I already had.

I also decided on a whim today that I would like to make some pretty flowers to put in my hair.  I saw some for sale but knew I could create them cheaper and more unique. I got some tulle, organza, felt, and alligator clips at Hobby Lobby today.  I already had some seed beads.  It was fun.
