Ok, here's my project. Check out my Flickr-account for large pictures & tutorial:  (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunna/sets/1304867/)

I wanted to make something that i would actually use myself, so i came up with this: I had this old sort-of-box-thing, in which i kept all my letters. But it tore apart and didn't look nice anymore. I decided to make a new one, out of 1 pair of jeans!



And because i finished early, i also made these cards Cheesy

Yes, step 1 shows a (i think the word is) binder, from which i cut the sides to make it the same size as the original, then i used textile glue to glue the jeans onto the map.
