 I just love denim.. and I hate throwing it away when those jeans are just not wearable anymore.. so here are some ideas you can do to give denim a new face..

Turn each pant leg into a handy lunch sack.

Wine bags, totes, backpacks, wall hangers, pillows, quilts.. you name it.. denim can be transformed into many things :)

I made a quilt.  Once.  Do you know how hard denim is on a sewing machine?  I broke numerous needles.
