30+ Projects to Refashion, Upcycle & Repurpose Denim Jeans

For Mothers Day, my daughter bought me a gorgeous denim tote bag - repurposed from a pair of jeans. This got me thinking about my own stash of pre-loved denim jeans. Some time ago I culled the ever-growing pile, giving over half to an Op Shop. However, I still have a whole tub full left.

Soccer Boots Bag ~ Drawstring Bag ~ Tutorial

A plastic bag just doesn't cut it when it comes to carting around soccer boots and all the gear that's needed when playing for a team sport - not in my world, anyway. What's called for is a sturdy drawstring bag, that keeps everything contained, is light to carry around and is easy to stuff into a larger bag.
