    i tired to have a friend of mine do it but she took me for a 100 bucks man,no biggie but if anyone makes bells...let me know man
     
  2. man.. can you like sew on a sewing machine or whatever, cause if you can, you can take a pair of jeans, slit the sides up to the knee, and sew in fabric to make them bells..

    Hey man, bells aren't hard to make. I have made 3 pairs in fact (4 if you count that one pair I hand sewed that fell apart). there is a website http://www.bigflares.com (it is targeted towards teenage girls I think, but it has some good patterns and stuff). As long as you take your time and make a lot of reallly close together stitches it would work. Only thing is that I am not to patient with sewing, so I rushed through and did a bad job. But you probably have friends with sewing machines. All you have to do is see if one of them would let you use theirs. It only takes a few seconds to do the actual sewing. The most time consuming part is the cutting and probably the hemming (I never hemmed mine). Good luck with it man!

    Oh I love bellbottoms. I really don't know if you'd consider any of my pants bell bottoms, but I outright refuse to wear pants that don't flare. Makes my ankles uncomfy. How big do you really want the bells to be? A lot of stores sell flared and boot cut pants and they have a big variety of size of flare. But I'm sure there are lots of mamas on here that can do wonders with a pair of jeans.

    be a man and shop the chicks section....especially in a thrift store. That's where my boyfriend and his buddy get their pants and they're super hot. If those aren't flared enough, then flare them out yourself. oh man my crotch is tickling just picturing a dude in flared out jeans like that.
    it's super sexy.

    Even though you think you might ruin a pair or two of pants by making bells... its worth it in the long run. After I bought a few pairs of cords from the thrift shop as practice pairs... I made the perfect pair and their unbelievable. I'd suggest heading to the thrift shop and checking it out there.
