Thing 46

I’ve lost count of the number of pairs of jeans I have in my stash, all rejected from my wardrobe for various reasons — worn out, out of style, wrong fit. But denim is so versatile so I can’t throw them out.

I found this pattern for a fabric basket at Victory Patterns blog. (Love her patterns! I want to try the Lola pattern this fall.) I used one jeans leg for the lining and a piece of burlap for the exterior. I didn’t have any interfacing on hand so I lined the burlap with quilt batting to give it some stiffness. It’s more soft than crisp, but it stands up on its own so we’re good.

I rolled the denim up a bit when topstitching the edge to give a small contrast band.

If that’s not enough contrast, I can always roll down the top like a cuff.

A basket like this is great storage for  all kinds of things. Legos, figurines, fabric scraps, buttons…flowers…

I still have lots of jeans left. Maybe I need to make a denim pouf. Or quilt. Or pillow. Or a new pair of jeans.
