A Little Lacy Up-Do

A Little Lacy Up-Do

Madison got some plain-jane shorts for her birthday last week.  We went for the cheaper shorts and just planned to add some trim on our own to save a few bucks.  I went to Joann's with the intention to buy eyelet lace for the cuff of these shorts... 
But ended up taking home this fabulous cotton lace.  It was on clearance and was about half the price of the eyelet lace.  The lace was about 2/12-3" wide so we were able to fold it in half, and sew half on the outside and half on the inside of the cuff.

Here is a closer look.  I told Madison I though the rolled up cuffs were cute, but she insisted on un-rolling the  cuff to make the shorts a little longer.  My silly modest girl :0)  So glad she wasn't telling me to roll them up a few more times ;0}

There you go.  A cute little up do for some fun shorts on a smaller budget.

I have totally lost track of what number of project I am on.  Maybe after a weekend of doing nothing at our moving box laden house I can make sense of things enough to figure things out.  Have a great weekend!
