Denim… old jeans… pile up around our house.
Huge holes in the knees.
Ripped out back pockets. Broken zippers. etc…
But I just cannot get myself to throw them away.
It’s such good fabric.
So, I do things like this…
Made from my husband’s old jeans..
one of several little bags to hold toys:
a small set of tiny blocks …
or small potato head toys…-
A pillow for my friend’s
We’ve even made picture frames
from old denim and cardboard
The duvet covers I made for
the boys a couple of years ago…
they’re denim on the top & flannel
on the underneath side.
(The quilts inside are their older
sisters’ old comforters… more recycling)
The legs of jeans make nice
laundry bags, too.
It looks kinda pottery barn-ish… (except it’s FREE!) and
Since there are so many pairs of jeans that need a new purpose…
I wonder what else I can come up with.
Have you made anything from old jeans?
