So What Else Can You Make from Old Jeans?

Turns out you can make a smooshie little cat
He's got a hand embroidered face and a tiny tape measure tail, and he's wearing a bell and bow rescued from a well know Christmas confectionery item.
I made one from an off-cut of scandi curtain fabric too

Or you can make a little fishie, and string him with some friends made from other vintage and scrap fabrics to make a driftwood mobile.
I got a bit carried away and made a pile of these, so there are some available on my Folksy Shop - Brimstone and Quicksilver
Still a shed-load of denim left, wonder what I'll make next?

Great uses of old jeans. I have just made something with our's.

A pile.

Not so artistic I'm afraid, unless Tate Modern want to make a bid for it.
