Sharing: Recycling Jeans-- Great Projects and ideas!

This handbag is made for a friend from her own old jeans.
A lot of cutting, ironing and color matching.
But the result is satisfying.
It looks beautiful. Above all, the old jean's warm feelings are well preserved and the bag is sturdy and very comfortable to carry, touch ,or just look at.

This hat was made for myself from a pair of old jeans. After washing it in the washer, I got the nice fray along each seams.

the picture below is from one of my favorite etsy sellers, green trunk design .she makes great looking hats and the model , I guess is the designer herself, is very beautiful too :)

I also found some nice jean recycling projects on line. here are some of them that I like.
please enjoy the pictures and links slowly. and Thanks and claps for  all these crafters and artists, because of you, life is a little bit more  beautiful, and the world is little bit more, better.
