A month of clothes upcycling wouldn't be complete without a look at jeans. If there is one item of clothing that I have seen upcycled in more ways than t-shirts, it would be jeans!
First of all, let me show you a couple of my own jeans upcycles which I've done in the past.
First a hair tie and clip holder for my girls, made from an old pair of their jeans:
For the tutorial for this, click here.
My other project- was a pencil case from part of the leg of an old pair of my hushand's white jeans:
Nice and sturdy!
But that is just a couple of small projects - I've been amazed by the fantastic jeans projects linked up to my clothes upcycling page so far:
Take a look at these:
Jeans aprons from the Queen Bee's Hive:(sorry this link has now disappeared!)
Amazing aren't they??
But there's so much more out there too!
Including things I would NEVER have thought of like a toilet seat cover and flower pots!
and how about this nifty video showing you how to make your own sandles from jeans!!
The possibilities really are endless. Just imagine how many of these you could make from just a single pair of jeans!! Mmmm, sounds like a good challenge! Anyone up for it?? There seem to be ways to use every last scrap of the jeans!!
I think Blue Jeans are defnintely more effective recycled than white (which is all I have left now)!
Once I've finished upcycling the clothes I have, I might need a trip to the charity shop to find an old pair of blue jeans....
Have you ever upcycled old jeans??
Got a project you can link up to the clothes upcycling linky here:
