What’s a blogger to do when her husband finally gives up a badly tattered pair of shorts??? Salvage every last thing she can from them. Am I right? I could not believe how long it took for him to give up on these shorts, in places they were bare threads. Wish I would have thought to take a picture of the shorts before they were tossed. The left over fabric was so thin, it couldn’t be used for anything. I kept all of the buttons (cargo pants have lots of buttons) and the zipper. As soon as I cut the zipper off I knew I wanted to make a bracelet from it. So here’s what I did:
I cut as close to the teeth as possible to remove the zipper. I wanted the bracelet to mainly be the teeth and the pull. I loved this bronze-y color to the zipper.
