Something for the man in my life

I always like to try to give something handmade as gifts to family. I have made my hubby button down shirts in the past, but I wanted to do something different this year.  Also it need to be something that didn't cost a lot in supplies. We were walking around the mall and went into Buckle.  I had never been in there before, WOW!!!  I love how they embelish some of the clothing. I don't love the prices though. They had some jeans that Scott loved but the price tag was $175, UGH!!!!

Here they are. Aren't they awesome!  I thought about these pants for a few days and then one day we were at Michaels and the light bulb went off.  I knew I could recreate them for cheap.  I bought a bag of their scrap leather for $9.99 went home and got busy.
Here is what I came up with.

I took the pocket off a pair of jeans he had.  Then I did a reverse applique of a leather cross. Scott told me he wanted them to have ragged edges. So that's what he got.

I didn't stop there.....I had googled images of jeans with crosses and found a pretty cool one that had  leather crosses on the front pant leg.  Of course I had to do it.  I love how it turned out.

I just cut the leather in cross shapes and taped them down to the jeans. I used tape instead of pins because I didn't want to put little holes in the leather.

Now I need to make some for myself
