20+ Crafty Things To Make With Old Jeans
Jeans usually outlast our use for them since styles and sizes change before they have a chance to wear out but they still have a lot of life left in them. Here are plenty of crafty and clever ways you can re-use the material and make them into something useful (all free tutorials and patterns). Enjoy!
Bibs: So lovely and so easy to wash!
Jeans Apron: Made with a pant leg from an old pair of jeans, bias tape binding and twill tape.
Booty Bag Tutorial: Made with the “seat” of an old pair of jeans (potential for lots of room depending on the size of the pants!).
Wall Hanging: The back pockets make a cute place to stash crafty stuff.
Coasters: The thick hems and seams are cut from old jeans then rolled tightly and glued together.
Denim Pouf: Tough, sturdy and nice! Made with assorted scraps of denim in different shades and packed with pillow stuffing.
Christmas Trees: Made with scraps of denim, colorful buttons and bits of decorative ribbon.
