DIY Dollar Store Notebooks covered with denim

This is a simple project to do. Just get a spiral notebook from the Dollar Store and lay it open on a piece of denim from blue jeans. Allow a 1 inch around the open notebook. Cut two pieces that would be the length of the notebook and half the width of the covers. You can add a reycled embellishment from another pair of jeans for the front of the notebook. Sew around the edges 1/2 inch from the edge attaching the two separate pieces that will be on the inside of the cover. Cut in 1/4 inch gashes around the edges about 1/4 inch apart and then wash in the washing machine to creat the raggedy effect. Makes a great gift to use as a journal or a small notebook to carry in your purse.

DIY Recycled Denim Blue Jean Easter Bags

Here is a pair of denim jean bags made to welcome spring! They would also make cute Easter bags. Cut out from the legs of jeans, these bags were hemmed on the top and sewn shut on the bottom. A handle was attached. Perfect for this time of year.

DIY Recycled Denim Jean Trivet or Hot Pad

This is an easy project that uses the inseams of denim jeans. Just cut the inseams close to the stitching. Use a think craft glue like Aleene's tacky glue and put a thick layer of glue on the inside of the inseam. Make a tight spiral as you continue to wind the inseam around the circle. As you add another inseam, just make sure to add extra glue to the ends and continue winding until you have the desired width. Let the trivet dry thoroughly on waxed paper. Enjoy using this fun creation or give as a gift.
