My mom made two of the heaviest, warmest quilts with jeans. They were basically just strips of different jean colors sewn together, backed with polar fleece (they might have cotton batting inside) and tied in different color yarns. They are the quilts I try to take home with me every time I visit the fam!

That's a good idea, but i don't have quite that many. Oh well. I could always wait....... *imagines the awesome quilt i could make* Smiley

I saw a picture somewhere that used the bottoms of jean legs to make one of those over the door fabric shoe holders.  I have a shoe holder (not DIY, but did get it at Goodwill) that holds ten pair of shoes, but you wouldn't have to make it that large,  maybe 3x4, so to hold 6 pairs would work.  So, for 6 pairs of shoes, that means if you split each leg at the seam, you'd need 3 pairs of jeans.  I thought I may try this myself, as my daughter is a shoe hog and I have lots of these legs from when I made my son a quilt.

I started a a little purse from a pair of mine.  I took a quilt square and used as a lining and in the process of making a little purse - no zipper or anything maybe velcro closure and beads or knit handle etc.

An interesting thought. It made me think of wallets, and how cool it would be to make my jeans into a wallet. Smiley

because it's a heavier fabric, you can use them along with typical stuffing for stuffies to give them a more floppy feel. Just shred the denim into thin strips and mix well with your usual stuffing then stuff away. It's a different kind of feeling for the stuffie but it's really nice and durable, safe material and usually free!!!

I've turned my jeans into a wallet! I have gotten so many compliments on it! That is a really good idea.

My idea is something I saw in the grocery store. I think its awesome. It was a coolie cup with jean material covering it. It was actually the pocket of the jeans but I think it would look cool with just jean material and then embellish it with a saying or buttons etc etc

Jean pant legs make really cute aprons. Smiley

Cut off legs, open one side seam on each leg and also cut off the double seam, sew the 2 legs together together. The widest end is the bottom of the apron. Add neck ties and waist ties. I didn't hem the outside edges of mine so it has the frayed look. I used back pockets from an old pair of jeans and added pockets to the apron. And I used the cut off double seams to make my neck and waist ties.
