Amie (Kitty Cats and Airplanes) and I are so lucky that we live close enough to meet regularly and are having way too much fun crafting together. So even though she was tired from having been on the road for hours that weekend, Amie joined me for a shorter than usual but greatly anticipated play date.
I have been trying to upcycle torn/stained jeans rather than throwing them away when they are no longer wearable. So far, I have made an apron and I still have a few jeans to give a new life to. The second pair has been thoroughly used up last weekend making fun denim belts.
Amie made a lace-up hip belt with some lace trim. Very simple and romantic.
I dug up into my stash of laces and picked out a ruffled trim that I had used for a fabric dye experiment. I also reused the Jeans pockets since they had an interesting design and finished with a buckled that I scored for pennies at an estate sale.
denim. I've started another upcycling projects with the leftover usable denim from this project and the apron. After all upcycling is all about reusing and minimizing waste.
