I save everything, including old pants! Here’s how to make recycled denim bins before you send your drawers to the Salvation Army.
Pants aren’t my thing so when I had some old jeans to make some skirts out of, I couldn’t part with the legs.
My mind raced with ideas and getting rid of good material was not gonna happen. If you have an old pair hanging around, here’s the perfect project: recycled denim bins!
Recycled Denim Bins
- A pant leg, any size or length
- Needle & thread
Take the pant leg and lay it flat. Use the scissors to clean up the edges. Then turn the leg inside out so that the seams are on the outside.
Thread your needle and create a little knot at the end. Hand stitch about 1/2 inch above one of the edges of the leg. Secure with another knot and cut the excess thread.
This is an awesome project for a group of teenage girls. I did one with my niece and laid out buttons, flowers and beads for her to decorate the bin, which added that touch of personalization.
You can also bust out the fabric markers and create monogram ones! Be creative and make it your own.
