As you are all no doubt bored to the back teeth by now of my tales of patching, I got to thinking what else could be done with jeans that are ‘past their best’.
Last summer, I made an old pair of jeans in to a skirt:
I have also made a small bag from a leg of a pair of jeans:
I have had the top of yet another pair sat pinned for months, waiting to be turned into a bigger bag:
And I have created a dedicated “Jean genie” (genius, I know…) Pinterest board for jeans upcycling ideas.
Sooooo, that brings me to the point of this post.
And it involves YOU!
In a new and exciting (?) twist to the tale of My Make Do and Mend Year, I am throwing down a challenge to my lovely, thrifty, inventive readers (don’t look around, I am talking to you..)…
And here it is….
***HOW MANY DIFFERENT ITEMS CAN YOU MAKE FROM JUST ONE PAIR OF JEANS…?***
Oh the excitement!
I’ll be kind and give you a couple of weeks on this one-answers on postcard, or leave a comment, or even blog about it and send me the link, and I will act as judge and jury and declare a winner.
There is no prize. This is a Make Do and Mend Year after all. You can however bask in the heady glory and kudos and being designated the ultimate Jeans Upcycler….
