Have you ever had to give away your favourite pair of jeans even though you didn’t want to?
Now, you can reuse them instead of bearing the pain of parting with them. If your denims are old, torn or simply don’t fit you, here are some creative alternative uses for them.
If you’re bored of your lampshade, just cut your denim into small pieces and stick them on the lampshade top. This way, you have a new lampshade in no time. Also, you could always make your own lampshade from scratch and use the denim patches for a cover.
Cut the fabric into small squares and stitch them together to form two big squares, enough to contain a cushion. Then, place the two big squares, one on top of the other, and stitch three sides. Attach a zipper on the unstitched side. You now have a funky patchwork denim cushion cover.
If you have a lot of jeans that aren’t being used, this is probably the best thing to make. Snip the pockets off all the jeans and keep them aside. Cover a thick board with a fabric of your choice and stick the pockets on to the board with fabric glue. You could use this board as a pen holder in your room or put it up in the kitchen to hold your cutlery. Use it any way you like.
This is probably the simplest to make. Cut an art board into squares. Now, cut denim into squares that are slightly bigger than your art board pieces. Stick the fabric on to the cardboard with fabric glue and wrap the edges over the sides of the squares. Your denim coasters are ready.
