    Quite a gold mine of ideas! Thanks.

    I love making raggedy quilts for the car from them but at the moment all my ladies have been making totes, in all sizes for shopping and holding quilt mats etc. for class, they come out so well and are so hardy. This is a pic of one that I made over 5 years ago, well loved and used

    ...implying that anyone who did feel comfortable enough to wear a vinyl mini skirt is somehow tasteless and is "subjecting" others to seeing them? If a person is comfortable enough in their own skin to wear what they like, where is it your place to judge?

    I wear a size 16-18 and if anyone doesn't like what's covering my butt, they don't have to look at it. That said, and to get back on the subject. Does anyone have a pair of those blue patchwork style shorts, if so, here's what you can do with them. I have a pink skirt of this material I got at a yard sale in case I could find a use for it. I think you could use light weight jeans for the sashing.

    Cool Sweet jeans!

It would make a good picnic blanket, and the vinyl would keep it from getting damp on the ground.

    This is so cool, I wouldn't have guessed it was made from the humble used jeans!
