Refashioning and Repurposing Jeans...

Jeans - we all wear them. Whatever the style - straight leg, boot cut, skinny, high rise, low rise, flared, boyfriend, slim, tapered - jeans are made with denim; a sturdy, cotton fabric that wears well.

Durable as they may be however, jeans don't last forever. Thinning fabric, particularly in the knees, eventually leads to holes. So, what can you do with pre-loved jeans that no longer fit, are too old to wear or are simply not a style you care to wear anymore?

30 Reusable Fabric Gift Bags...

Reusable fabric bags are a great way to wrap presents. Not only do they look terrific, but there's nothing wasted or thrown out. Bags can be very simple; just a couple of rows of stitching, tied with a ribbon and made in literally minutes. Or they can be more elaborate and a gift in themselves, with the lucky recipient receiving two gifts in one.
