    One of my guild members makes jeans skirts out of jeans. PM me for more info.

    Another makes aprons, using coordinating fabric for ruffles and ties.

    I use the pockets to make pot holders. They turn out really nice. The front pocket can make an oven mit,the back pocket makes a really cute slip on your hand pot holder. Of course, they need to be lined and properly prepared for heat.

    Everyone is so creative.
    I'm looking forward to my son wearing out some of his jeans to make some of these projects.

    I have seen a picture of bibs made with the denim.

    I want to make a tool caddy to hang on the wall and put often used tools in.

    WOW! Who would have thought an old pair of jeans could turn into all this neat stuff. I'm going to be cutting up old jeans in the future.

    We do love our jeans! Wheather to wear or to repurpose.
    Hard to imagine a time when we didn't have our jeans.

    This is so cute. Does each square have one side denim and one side cotton or flannel? Thanks for sharing!

    Denim potholders are also great. Easy to make and they are very durable.

    You changed your avatar! Looking good. Denim has to be the all time favorite to fashion into new things.

    The items shown here are terrific ideas! Think I'll try the puppywog quilt, my fur baby needs a new one.

    I saw some great aprons made out of old jeans at a craft fair and have been looking for a pattern but have yet to find it they also had some made of old bib overalls. They added cotton print fabric in places, for the pockets and waist band if I remember correctly.

    My son had a big bag of jeans for GoodWill and I'm like - I'm making you a quilt for college!! I got it done for his birthday which is November 4th and it is awesome. I used 7 inch squares so it went pretty quick.
