Denim projects – some inspiration for you guys

After I am looking for some ideas for my denim project, I’ve collected a lot of pictures from the internet. Ohmy, if I have more time…

Here are some useful stuff, if you are looking for some inspiration.

First of all, tutorial about how do you want to cut up your old jeans for a lot of DIY projects: http://www.instructables.com/id/Recycle-DenimJeans-into-Reusable-parts-with-no-wa/?ALLSTEPS 

… and here is a denim dress, what you can make, if you want: http://www.instructables.com/id/Recycled-Denim-Dress/

And where am I now with my denim project? … I have some jeans cutted, some strings already measured and cutted for my blanket, but still… I would like to break my rules first (!), and create a quick sewing/crafting case for myself to hold my crafting supplies together (in a no-accessable place for my son!) Then, I can start working… but during that time, all of the jeans scraps are made for my projects on my list! 🙂

So, are you inspired? 🙂

    I have so many pairs of jeans waiting for upcycling – and I thought they were all going to become a rug… now I have plans for the pockets too!! AWESOME! x
