I can't speak for your kiddos, but my boys have gone hog wild with the holes in their knees.  Really Bradley?  5 pairs of pants (+ 2 pairs of church pants!).  I blame it mostly on the long winter spent inside on his hands and knees for hours racing his cars.  Both the boys shorts have been getting worn out from running around in them all summer, so I decided to take this massive pile of pants, and up-cycle them into more shorts!  The fact that they can now wear these year-round in California is an extra bonus!

This tutorial is almost painfully simple.  When I say 10 minutes, I mean 10 minutes start to finish, BAM.  As long as it is during naptime.  If the kids are up during this project we both know this is going to take longer than 10 minutes.

Here we go....

Take a second and make a pretty pattern with your cut pants if you have a short attention span.

That's it!  Now go let your kids roll around in the big pile of new shorts they now have.
