Heather took several old denim jeans, cut them up, and stitched this adorable summer dress.

Heather recycled jeans into this adorable jumper. She took 1st place with her creation in the "Recycle Jeans Challenge" at our Project RUNWAY camp.


These adorable stuffed giraffe animals were made by cutting up old jeans into the giraffe pattern and sewing them back together. What a cute recycled denim jeans project.

Lynda from Raleigh, N.C. sends us these photos showing recycled denim pants that she turned into these adorable purses for her grand-daughters. She also shared how inspiring it is to see others people's work on the site and you-tube. She made these purses out of one pair of size 2 jeans for kids that she bought at a thrift store.  She cut the legs off and made the shorts purse and decorated it and lined it. She also made the handle out of some beads. (Which I think is an awesome idea!) She made all of this by eye with no pattern. Of course her grand-daughters just loved what their nana had made them.

Sometimes I think we don't realize or appreciate how precious handmade things are that people spent the time, love, and effort making. I am in my 50's and I still have several quilts and raggedy dolls that my nana and great-grandmother made me. Each time I look at them a smile comes to my face thinking about my wonderful nana, grand-mother, and great-grandmother. I wish they were here now, so I could just hug them and thank them again for making me those wonderful heirlooms.
