    My DH has finally decided to get rid of some of his very worn out clothing.

    As he handed a pair off cut-off jeans to me - he said "Maybe you can cut off the belt loops on these (to be put on another pair of jeans)"

    Cut off the top "belt" section and sew them to a pair of his undies...ask him if he likes the recycling plan

    I'm really loving this idea !!

    you could save them up from a few pairs of jeans
    attach waistbands to top of back of quilts
    that you hang for display and loop a rod thru it.

    We always save ours for the cat "fishing pole" toy. It is a fiberglas rod with 80 lb test braided saltwater fishing line and a denim belt loop attached as the "fly".

    We bought this in New Orleans nearly 20 years ago at a great shop called The Cat House and the resident cat took DH right to her preferred toy. Her name was Miss Belle Watling and she was a fluffy long-haired black kitty :-)

    It has been loved by all kitties we have had since!

    The poor, neglected fellow. Does he blow out his belt loops?
