What Is A Girl to Do...

with 12 pair of jeans that don't fit? Lose weight?

Nope... not me.

I cut em up,re-purpose them into cushions and pillows for my love seat on the front porch. Much easier than losing weight. I would feel defeated every time I saw them hanging in the closet.

NOT NOW. Hahahahaha I showed you skinny jeans! Don't mess with this mama!

I think I'll go eat a piece of birthday cake and sit on my new cushions.

Those are SUPER CUTE! I wish I could sew. I saw an idea for using too small jeans to make a skirt today, and I wished I could do that with my old ones. I guess Goodwill is in luck in my case!

I LOVE THIS!!!! I have a closet full of old, torn, un-wearable jeans to waiting to be used. Did you use pillow forms for the throw pillows or are they just stuffed and if so with what?
Smiles!

What a great idea and it looks fabulous. I could cover my king size bed and sectional sofa with my too skinny jeans if only I could sew like that! Nancy

Your recycled denim cushions and pillows are wonderful. Recycling denim is such a frugal way to create beautiful things from old jeans. Thanks for sharing the project.

chilihead said...

THAT is clever. And they turned out so cute! Love that idea--and the mindset. I may have to adopt it myself. ;)
