The mills are gone now, but denim is still my fabric. Just check out the old jeans above–
I’ve harvested the waist band, belt loops, pockets and legs for other projects, and they’re still not ready for the trash. That center front cloure will make a great details on one of my bags or garden tool belt.
Old denim adds great character to projects. Shaded by wear, it keeps many of the vintage floral prints I use from looking too sweet. It’s sturdy. Washing only makes it more interesting. And blue denim goes with everything.
So don’t toss those old jeans, harvest them for sewing.

And make sure to let your family and friends know you want their old jeans. Thrift stores like Goodwill are another option for used blue denim. Check them out–
