I should not have bought them, I should have walked right past them and not even bothered to stop, but I didn't. They fit, they were the perfect length, and the perfect price. I needed a pair of jeans that weren't going through at the knees, I needed a pair of jeans that were comfy. I needed a pair of jeans for work - I needed a pair of jeans.
So I bought them.
We come home and I washed them.
Then I wore them.
At first they were fine.
It began partway through the day.
They got baggy.
I pulled them up.
They got baggy again.
I pulled them up.
I bent over to pick up the paint pots,
they sagged down again.
I pulled them up - again - and again - and then again.
I got home and washed them.
Gave them a second chance.
It was a total repeat.
No - more - chances!!
What a waste - so cranky - need to do something about this situation.
So I made two bags. I needed some value for my $30.00 jeans and here it is.
I must tell you, I got my revenge, or so I thought, however, I don't like the first bag at all. I have packed it away, thinking I will donate it, because I can't stand looking at it just yet.
This bag made from the legs of the jeans, I love it, I love the size of it, and I love the colour of it. I was going to put a few doilies on it for decoration, but now leaving it plain, because sometimes I like plain, this way I can dress it up with a brooch or scarf to match my outfit. I like options, I like to be free.
The bow is tied using the seams from the legs of the jeans, this is how I use my bag right now. I like this bag, this bag is good.
Oh and I did get me a 'new' pair of jeans.
I went to the op-shop, paid $5.00 for a pair of jeans still with the tags on them.
They stay up.
They stay up all day.
They stay up all day even when I bend down to pick up the paint pots.
They stay up - again - and again - and again - and again.
it's Karma baby - that's all there is to it - Karma!
