Over at her blog, Joyful Daisy, Amy came up with a cute (and useful) way to reuse old pairs of jeans. She created durable placemats!
For this project, Amy collected some of the old pairs of denim jeans at her house. She did a bit of deconstructing, so that she’d be able to use the pockets and some of the larger pieces of denim. Amy used scraps of fabric from her stash to supplement the worn denim in putting together the placemats. She added embroidery and other embellishments to the old jeans’ pockets, before sewing them onto the placemats to serve as utensil holders. These will be perfect for summertime picnics!
