All of these are really awesome but I was really drawn to this post after seeing the name of your niece lol. My sister's name is Elizabeth Rheanin. Pronounced the same but spelled different. She used to go By her middle name until about a year ago. She got tired of her name being misspronounced. But we still call her by it. I just found it interesting, never seen anyone else with the same name. Usually people don't add the N to the end.

Wow, they are all so lovely,

Here's one of the ones I have made (for a friend out of an old pair of her husband's jeans)

and I made myself an iPhone cozy

I have another one in progress bit it broke my machine a while back (too many layers of denim= big old tangle of cotton!) so I have steered clear for a while till I get my confidence back, my friend's sister saw the one I made my friend & gave me a pair of her old jeans with loads of cool pockets to make into a bag, it took me moths to come up with some good ideas of what to do though as I was so scared of cuttinginto her jeans & then getting it wrong!

Here's a toddler back pack from a year ago:

It's made from a pair of black jeans and plaid shorts.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Funky Mover! I have the exact same jeans with the cool pockets XD I usually keep up, but fell behind with getting ready to move, and with the crazy-ness of life this year for me, but i used to make denim bum bags out of pretty much every pair of jeans i ruined (sadly i never got pix of them)... (I have a stock pile now, i'll have to start making more of them up once the move is finished)
