Blue Jean Crafts

Fun Denim Recycling Craft Projects

I have a whole bin full of blue jeans that no longer fit anyone in my household or that have holes where you don't want them; I just can't bring myself to get rid of any of them. I do really need to reduce my inventory of blue jeans though, so I figured crafting with them was a great way to use them up.
