Ever wondered what to do with those jeans with a torn knee, besides patching them? I have seen a couple of ideas lately. Here are a couple I pinned:
My son has one favorite pair, and in the middle of summer he wanted to wear them. One, it was way to hot, and two they had large holes in the knees. We decide to cut them just above the knee, put some stitching around the bottom and voilà….a pair of shorts were created :-).
We then decided to recycle the cut off pieces, not a large amount so we created a pencil-case for school. I cleaned up the edges, cut two pieces of like size, pulled a zipper and some fabric for lining and the appliqué. I had purchased some time ago now the “Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus” fabric line which my son is enjoying reading at the moment. This is the end result.
He loved it!! Linking up with Amanda Jean over @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.

Thank you – it was a nice quick project 🙂
Great idea and I love the pigeon fabric 🙂
What an awesome idea!! I love that fabric only cuz we love the books here but I had no idea what I’d ever do with it. Great idea and it turned out super cute!
Cute little pencil case 😀 I didn’t know that fabric was based on a book — I always wondered what it was all about 😀
That is such a great idea! I have some leftover denim from when my daughter made cutoffs this summer that I held onto for a possible future project.
