Right now we have about 3 pairs of jeans and two denim jackets at home waiting in the stash to be reused. So I thought it would be a good idea to share with you the creative projects I found. I think I will end up with a kind of floormat. 

Which project appeals to you most?

1. Floormat from waistbands and inseams by passionfly
2. Jeans slippers by Nancy Minsky
3. Recycled denim coaster by My Recycled Bags
4. Christmas trees in denim by One Crafty Mumma
5. Drawstring bag by Hooked on Needles
6. Recycled denim oven mitt by My Recycled Bags


  1. I love the coasters! You know my recycled projects right? first 3 here

  2. Love the denim coasters. Also the drawstring bag. Since I can't sew, I have to settle for the coasters:):)

  3. These are wonderful!!
    All of them!
