I have to say I'm really impressed with the new book Jeaneology: Crafty Ways to Reinvent Your Old Blues by Nancy Flynn. You might recognize Nancy's name from her column on GetCrafty.com, plus she's done sewing demos at Maker Faire. She has a blog here too: http://www.belleepoquewhimsy.com/

When I picked up her new book, I was happy to see that she has all kinds of sewing projects in the book and not just really advanced stuff -- especially since I don't sew that much.

Her book has cool sewing projects that help you find uses for old jeans you'll never fit into again, or were ruined, or you bought and never wore. For the projects jeans are reinvented as other clothes, bags, wallets, jewelry, coasters and pillows. And there's some pretty cool projects that guys can do to like wrist cuffs -- which is nice to have a book that isn't just for the crafty ladies.

And the book is on Myspace with blog updates in case you want to see what Nancy is working on lately -- she often links to DIY projects both in the book and new stuff:

So if any of you get the book, let me know what projects you're making from it. I've made a few so far and I'd love to see how other people customized their projects too!

Cool, I'll have to see if my library has it! I have some jeans lying around.

yeah it's actually a pretty cool book. I have a lot of old jeans that I hate to throw out and this book shows you how to make some interesting crafts like ipod cases and wrist cuffs too. I handsew instead of use a machine, so that's saying something if I can use it. ;-)
