I have about 15 pairs of jeans that are waaay to big for me and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what I could do with them?

I've been saving mine to weave into a rag rug.

lucky you! i would kill to be in your situation. what i do with my old jeans, my dads old jeans, etc.. is turn them into bags. one version is to cut out the pockets- the entire pocket, not just the front, attach something for a handle and decorate it to make a mini bag. another version for more of a messenger bag is to cut the jeans an inch or two under the crotch, sew it up, attach a strap and decorate and you're done! for the big bag, i used a tie in the belt loops to cinch it closed, and some suspenders as a strap. it came out really cool. maybe i'll add pics soon. you can also make pillows out of the jeans too im sure. there are so many possiblities. have fun!

Make a denim crazy quilt. Saw one at the fair. It was pretty cool.

Cut off the legs. Cut them open. Sew them all together so it makes one long consecutive piece of fabric. Lay out a pattern and it will look totally unique.

Chop the waist band off. Take in. Wear with no waist band.

Donate them to the City Mission.

Now get craftin'!
