I loved these jeans so much. They were a staple in my wardrobe for many years through many moments and memories. When they were ripped in places I dare not share, I added them to my fabric stash. It makes my heart so happy when I can take something I love that doesn’t work anymore and turn into something new. Recycled craft projects like this are a great way to teach kids (of all ages mind you) to make good use of what they have. With a few other items from my craft stash, I turned this pair of jeans into some awesome kitchen items.

Written Directions for Repurposing Jeans Into Kitchen Decor
If pictures are not your thing…
- Cut two 7 inch squares from your jeans.
- Cut one 6 1/2 inch square from your Spoonflower fabric.
- Sew them together leaving the outer half inch of the jean squares untouched.
- Quilt a little in the middle. Add a heart or whatever is clever.
- Trim your strings.
- Cut around the edge every smidgen you can into the first stitch without cutting it.
I used some more of the materials to embellish this dish towel.
I am in love with the frayed part at the bottom. It was worn over many steps…many many steps.
And then a slice of the leg to make this fun decor for a jar.
