I have an idea for you.  You could make a very durable rag rug out of them.  Cut them into strips about 2 inches wide, and as long as possable, braid them, and then you sew them together by hand in a circular pattern as big as you like.  You might be able to find a website with pics.

I've made various things with old jeans that my dad used to wear.  Two purses, a bookbag, a book cover, and a hat. Smiley I sewed all of that by hand since I don't like my mom's sewing machine. It hates me for some reason. Wink

I haven't tried this myself but I've thought about it: cut off the legs, and turn the top of the jeans into a bag--sew the bottom of it and add some kind of handle. Good luck with whatever you try.

If I would have many pairs of jeans I would totally make a beanbag chair!
