I've seen some really cute fabric flowers made out of denim. They were really cute. That might be an idea.

Reduced Reused Revamped Recycled: Reloved Remnants

I make rat hammocks from worn legs. better legs get used to patchwork a decent size piece of material for bags of all sorts, waistcoats, hats etc.

A semi decent pocket gets turned into a bag/purse, or patched onto something else.

A good enough waistband, usually with the zip, gets used as a beachbag closure. often with and old tie or 2 as handles.

Scraps get made into flowers, often stuck on alice bands as well as made into bag charms and brooches.

I also toyed with keeping strips and rag rugging - but by then I am usually sick of the sight of the jeans and just thread any lefovers into the rat cage and let them chew on it!!

if you're still interested in wearing them, old jeans
can be turned into a cute skirt, shorts, or capris.
you can also turn scraps into hair bows.(:

Denim hippie skirts.  Open inside seams on the legs & add long triangular pieces front & back to fill in.  Embroider or applique to make it more fun.

Denim also makes good rag rugs, pot-holders & purses.
