This is one of the easiest refashion EVER! You only need a few decorating supplies {ribbon and buttons in my case}, thread and needle and the best part is that you get to save money in clothing budget! Not bad huh?

So choose the pants you have around that no longer fit the length on your kids legs. In my case I had these denim ones!

Double fold your hem of the pants. You can cut the actual hem if you want but I chose just to fold them.

Do some stitches on both sides of the leg along with the side seam so it won’t unfold when washing.

Cut a strip of ribbon, fold one end, place it on the outer side of the leg side seam, and stitch it to the folded hem on wrong side of the fabric:

Fold the ribbon so it would get to the outside of the pants and then fold the other end of the ribbon like an arrow. Pin in place.

Place some cute buttons over the ribbon close to the end and stitch everything together.

Then on the back I applied the same cute buttons but different color to the pockets.

Just take a look at my girl, she loves it and she’s been using those same pants since she is 18 months with different looks! Cool right?

Another great thing about this, is that you can do this to your own pants and have an unique look!!! Awesome right?
