you could cut them up into squares and make them into a quilt...i've been meaning to do this for a loooong time, but don't have much space to store all those old jeans...

Hmmmm - I love this sort of thing, so (starting with the obvious):  bolster pillows        drawstring gift sacks for wine bottles

drawstring bags in general        sleeves on a contrasting bodice          cut up for patches           make a denim elephant (ala sock elephant format)

if wide-cut bottoms:  make a hat           sew bottom, fill with soil, sprout tree and plant when big enough, like they do with burlap

coat with the stuff that turns it ceramic and make sculpture               pulverize and use to make stationary            ....?....

I sewed the bottom of a jeans leg closed and hemmed up the top and put a strap on it for a water bottle carrier.  It works so well.

It's a good material (and about the right amount of material, too) to make cheap stuffed dog toys. You can buy squeakers or electronic noisemakers to put inside, too. It lasts longer than most other fabrics for them to chomp, and when they tear it you can take it away and salvage the squeaker.

you could cut out round pieces, with a diameter of hmm...10cm (doesn't really matter, whatever you want - you cut it), then you sew these roundstogether so they overlap eachother with zig-zag, maybe with different colored threads? Just a thought Smiley
Well now that you have your new "circle-fabric" you can for example sew a skirt out of it Smiley
