Skirt made from Old Jeans

I've had a pair of my old jeans torn apart for awhile waiting to become this skirt. I finally got around to it last night. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! I poured over a couple of tutorials here: and here: . I was wanting to follow the second one and put triangles in the sides, but Elana and I decided it didn't need them. I left the bottom unhemmed, but I did sew a ling about 3/4" up to prevent too much fraying.
P.S. Sorry the photos are so bad! I took them late last night, and the lighting wasn't very good.
