Save Those Blue Jeans!
I saved blue jeans till I ran out of room for anymore. Thought I had enough to finish my sons rag quilt but had to ask friends for a few more donations. It was well worth the wait. The quilt only cost me 10.00 to make as I got the backing material 1/2 off. It is twin plus size.
My daughter has made countless purses and packs from old jeans. We have also made placemats, skirts from jeans, pillows, and door jam draft keepers.
