I know what you're thinking. Wine is pretty fancy, right? But what if you need a hostess gift for a more casual affair? Turn your pant legs into wine bags for a more "dressed down" look, and you're sure to be the life of the party no matter the dress code.
Pockets are by far the most useful part of a pair of pants. Why not make them the most useful part of your office? Sew pockets onto a panel of fabric (might we suggest denim?) and store pens, rulers, and other office supplies for easy access.
There's a reason jeans are made out of denim: it's durable. Make a long-lasting tote bag out of a couple different pairs and use it for a beach bag. For added interest, use fabric from jeans in varying colors.
To complete the look, make some bracelets to match your necklace and earrings. Suddenly, your old holey jeans are the fanciest thing you own. (Note: if your old holey jeans are actually the fanciest thing you own, it may be time to go shopping.)
These cute jean flowers can be used to decorate just about anything. Pillows, wreaths, hairbands, maybe even another pair of jeans! The only limitation is your imagination (and how many pairs of old pants you have).
You can also use your old jeans to make a festive wreath! Hang it up to celebrate the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, or Jeans Day. What's that? You say Jeans Day doesn't exist? Wrong! Every day is Jeans Day!
Speaking of festive denim decorations, why not make a stocking out of your leftover fabric (assuming you have any after all these great ideas)? If you put extra pockets on the outside, you'll get extra presents. That's how stockings work, right?
