One of the most frustrating things for me when I first started my blog was finding all sorts of fantastic ideas online and realizing it would cost more than I was comfortable with to replicate those ideas. Until…I started looking at what I already had on hand. I had a great hobby idea – Use What You Have!
Use What You Have
Now, one of my greatest creative supplies is something my husband has worn out and can no longer use…his jeans! He goes through the knees in his jeans faster than I ever thought possible and since I struggle to throw anything out I had a healthy stash of denim by the time I started What I Live For. Even with holes in the knees, a pair of jeans can go a very long way.
One pair of jeans can go towards any of the following projects if your fabric stash is low…
So, next time you find a project you would like to try but lack the supplies, have a look around your home and look at what you already have. You might be surprised at how well it will work as a substitute!
What have you, or would you like to make out of a pair of jeans? I’d love to hear!
