Denim projects – old jeans crafts again

Hello Guys,

I know, most of you are still coming to my blog to get some inspiration about repruposed jeans crafts, so here they are. Another set of inspiration… Unfortunately these are not my work, but I’ll try to find some time to try at least one of them… I already have like 4-5 big boxes of unused jeans stuff… 🙂

  1. Book cover

    It can be a real book, or e-book… I just love this design. The pocket is a big plus. Tutorial (and picture) source: http://helloglow.co/recycled-jean-diy-e-reader-cover/
  2. Wall organizers
    I like almost all of them, so it’s hard to choose…

Another denim pillow

Hello Guys,

 

do you think, I am not crafting while I am filling my shop with jewelry? Of course I do. My plan is to change the old, bad looking small pillows to new ones. I am not saying that new ones are much better, but we can say, they are matching together. Let’s see, what I am talking about:

Here is an old small pillow, what I’ve made for myself like 15 years ago, when I started to learn sewing.

Old applique pillow

 

Okay, so it had to die! 🙂 Then, here is my new one:

New denim applique pillow

 

… and look at this, when it’s “used”:

Handmade denim pillows

 

… so: more to come 🙂

Excuse me for the mess…

… my son making memories…

Hmmm… here is his room after a long playful day:

Now, you can wonder, why am I having some crafty stuff for him on my project list… I have made already 4 denim pillows from my old jeans, so after I packed everything back to their home, here are our reading nook:

(sorry for the bad pictures, my son always wanted to steal my camera, so I had to be quick :))

Some of the other pillows will be use for the same way soon…

Another set of denim bracelet

Hello Guys,

 

I have ordered some resin cabochons, and didn’t know exactly what to do with them. I wanted to try some new stuff, but I didn’t know, what is coming out from those.

I have made some new denim bracelets (you can find my tutorial about that here). If you don’t want to DIY, you can buy mine at my shop.

Recycled denim inspiration for those, who want to create HUGE, awesome things!

Yesterday, I dig into the Pinterest boards, and found a lot of useful tutorials, and inspirational photos about what can you do with your old jeans. Then.. I found these:

So? What do you think? 😀

(I hope, my next post will show some of my new work – but those will be more simple! :))

Home projects with a huge inspiration

Hello Guys,

Last time, when I’ve checked my project list, I realized that there are a lot of items, what I should work on already. One of these is my son’s room. Actually, I hate that room, and as we would like to move to a house soon, we don’t want to pay too much for renovation and furniture. The base shape of this room is silly (have like 8 corners) no windows, only at the top (our flat is a studio-apartement, so our main windows are at the ceiling). It’s a bit cold…

The first thing what I have to do, is to throw out a bookcase (to the anteroom, or just trash it, did not decided yet). Then I hope, we will trash soon our changing table as well, that can be put off from the other bookcase – that bookcase contains 4 plastic boxes with all of his toys. That has to be changed as well, my son always spilling his toys out. … Then, we have some space.

 

So, first of all, he needs a new bed. But… with the small spaces and silly corners, we cannot buy an ‘ikea’, or any other type of bed, and we don’t want to pay too much for it. So, here is the deal:

He will get 3 big pillows (same size, from jeans fabric ofc):

During the day, we can use them separately, but for the night, they will collapse to one longer bed (between the walls, then it cannot slip).

Then… I have to create some pillows – we have a lot of pillows already, but all of them are different sizes, different fabrics, different colors. Most of them are too old for a kid’s room. I have to renew then. There are a lot of ideas on Pinterest, here are some ideas:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… some letters will be created too:

 

… these were, which can be imagined in my son’s room. Let’s see some other inspiration for those, who want to create (or buy) something more… ehm … difficult? 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… simply awesome! 🙂

Then I have to make some simple boxes, where he can put his toys:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… that’s all for today. If it wasn’t enough for you, tomorrow, I’ll put up some fantastic inspirational pictures, what can you do with your old – recycled – jeans! Let’s go, and sew something!

Book review by me – Fabric leftovers

Hello Guys,

I’ve ordered some books from Amazon, and I wanted to share some really cool ideas what I’ve found there. My first review is about Fabric Leftovers: Simple, Adaptable Ways to Use Up Scraps from D’Arcy-Jean Milne.

Fabric leftovers

“- Got scraps that are too good to throw away?” – A LOT!
“- Don’t know what to do with them?” – Hmm, can use some new ideas!

Of course I have a lot of scraps. Mainly from felt, but some years ago I have started to sew, and I kept all of the small scraps. I made patchwork pillows, them I kept the smaller pieces… so I have an awesome book to create some new stuff with them. Look at these ideas:

(sorry for the bad pictures, in the book these things looks awesome!)

Some of my favorite: recycled JEANS again!

The tutorials are easy to understand, and I can follow the steps. The pictures are good, and there are some drawings as well, so you can learn every small ideas. I really like this book, and I will make some items from here – will blog it! 🙂

Denim projects from an old newspaper

Hello Guys,

My son always trying to reach my bookcases, and getting all of my old newspapers. Sometimes we are sitting down, and reading a bit. Some days ago he found a magazine (Praktika), and look what we saw inside: some really cool denim projects. I made some photos. It’s a Hungarian magazine, so you probably won’t understand any word of them, comment pls, if you need me to explain any of them.

At the last picture there is a small bag, which is not a DIY thing (you could buy it somewhere, unfortunately there are no shop with that name), but I might will try to make one.

Had some time again … :)

Yesterday, we have a day off at my husband’s mother, so she is playing with my son, and we have some time to lay down a bit. I created a lot of new things, and finished some others too. I fallen in love in the felt-denim brooch, so I will make a lot more of that. I think, I am in the way to find my style 🙂

So, here are the older ones, a purple and a pink one:

Purple hand embroidered felt pendant

Pink-grey hand embroidered felt pendant
Pink-grey hand embroidered felt pendant

Then, I have found some scraps from my “sunshine” set:

Yellow-green hand embroidered felt earrings
Yellow-green hand embroidered felt earrings
Yellow-green hand embroidered felt pendant
Yellow-green hand embroidered felt pendant

Then… here are my newest ones; my favorite is the blue-grey one, because it’s from my old jeans – I really like the look of this one. 🙂 Which is your favorite?

I have started to upload them to my shop 🙂
