Let’s repurpose some jeans!



There are SO many cool things you can turn an old pair of jeans into! Sew Crafty has been making patchwork tote bags, cross-body bags, “whole jeans” bags, “half jeans” bags & wine bags out of old jeans with our students for years!  We also cut the legs into strips and weave them together to make placemats, potholders & coasters. An old pair of jeans can be transformed into a cool skirt, too!  Once our new studio renovations are complete and we’ve moved in (early June) we will begin offering workshops to teach adults how to make all of these projects.  In the meantime, save those old jeans and you may even want to tell your friends (who don’t sew themselves) to save their old jeans for you to repurpose.
