    I have to do a class for my OHCE group on recycled denim.
    While I use denim all the time for repurposed items, I was wondering, what is YOUR favorite thing to use old jeans, jumpers and skirts to make?

    I love shopping bags! and rugs!

    Dog beds
    They last a good long time, the only down side is that they can't fluff them up and curl up in them.

    Is this sandwiched? if so with what? Or is it only the denim patches?
