Camo pants to shorts. And Introduction.

This is my first post. I posted on Wardrobe Refashion and have followed Refashion Co-op since the beginning. I learned to sew and refashion from my mother who made and refashioned clothes passed between cousins when I was growing up.

I have just semi-retired to the Ranch House. My goal is to daily record on a calender the mending and refashion work I complete over the next year. Some days it is just a button, a hem, or a patch. I also recycle for cloth napkins, cleaning rags, pot holders, and other household goods.
Most sewing this summer will be for home and ranch wear and for the days I help out at the family flower shop.
There are no before pics. These were long Camo jeans bought for 25 cents at a charity sale. I planned to cut just enough off of the hem to patch them for Charlie's ranch work. The patches were serged and placed outside the pants. There was a larger amount to patch than thought so we now have Camo shorts for Charlie to wear out to the garden. Scraps were used to patch other ranch jeans.

Somedays it will be only a quick mend such as a button or patch. That will give time to start on the next item. Some items will take several days start to finish. I have lots of UFOs that will count when done. This morning I finished mending a ranch jacket that I had started mending over a year ago. Now I can start on tomorrows item.
