Long flowy jeans skirt tutorial or help?

I was cleaning out my sewing room (hah! more like moving piles from one side to the other to see what was underneath them) and found a bunch of jeans I had been saving to make into skirts.  I really want to make a long flowy jeans skirt, but I'm not good at designing stuff, I need a pattern to follow, so to speak.  I've been hunting the web on and off all day and haven't found anything that really tells me how to turn a pair of jeans into a nice long skirt, all the free patterns and tutes I found were for short skirts.  I did find one, but it was for a long pencil skirt - and I want this skirt to be comfy like my jeans!  Help please?

Dyeing a printed shirt

This past weekend I thrifted an awesome shirt with an adorable robot on the front. The only problem is, the shirt is a horrific saffron color that I just can't wear. The shirt is a good size for me, and is comfortable 100% cotton that's been softened with wear, so I don't want to just cut the image off the front and apply it to a different garment.

So I had an idea. I'm thinking about busting out a candle and putting a layer of wax over the design, front and back, and then gently bleaching and dyeing the shirt in a dye bath on the stove (batik, basically).

I've never done this, though. Have any of you? Any advice is welcome!

Recycled Purse

I have been reading a lot lately about Refashioning and Recycling old clothes.  This was my first attempt and I love how it turned out.  Now I'm wishing I had taken pictures and done a tutorial but I will have to save that for my next project. 
My youngest son had a cute pair of corduroy pants that no longer fit him, he actually only wore them a few times, that I thought would make a really cute purse.  For the lining I used an old pair of pink flannel shorts I had but never wore anymore and the belt is a scrap piece of material left over from a dress I made a few years ago.  I still need to sew the strap on, it's being held with safety pins in these pictures.  I also am not sure what I want to use for a closure.....maybe I'll just leave it open, I'm not sure yet.

Can't (and not tryin to!) compete with most of what goes on here like that last fantastic jacket...
but slammed out a pair of comfy shorts for my husband for Christmas out of 2 of his old t shirts. Living Sacrifice and Dead Kennedy's. He's gunna dig them.

My own Freaks in Fur

I finally got around to making the jacket I have been contemplating since I found some yardage of the cross print purple velboa velvet Lip Service used for Freaks in Fur. I sewed the fur with the pile upside down so that it is fluffier.

I wish I had made it an inch or so longer, but generally I'm happy with it.
