Move over, MacGyver!

Remember that time MacGyver detonated a bomb with a paper clip or saved the day by plugging a sulfuric acid leak with a piece of chocolate?

Yeah ... crazy.

Well, I bet you didn't know that K Belle had similar skills.

While at school, the poor dear ripped her shorts from one side to the other, requiring emergency sewing expertise.

With only a paper clip and dental floss in hand, she was able to mend these torn shorts. Yep. She made a needle out of a paper clip and sewed her shorts up with dental floss. And, believe it or not, they stayed intact for some time.

La Petite Belle decided she would wear them too.

I'm so proud.

and the good thing is, she can get food out of her teeth by biting on the shorts!!! lol...that is some skill!

Um...I've done similar with staples...

Yay! Love that ingenuity!

PS. My finest moment may well have been using the underwiring from my bra to get us into a car when we'd lost the keys (and the spare was inside the car). But the dental floss stitching is pretty smart!
