It’s the Denim DIY Days of August! Denim, Fall and Back-to-School go hand in hand, so we have pulled together 10 denim projects for you. Most start with a denim garment as the base and then are embellished or restyled. So hit the thrift store or you closet and get started.
If you can thread a needle, you can create this funky jean jacket.
Whether you have old jeans around the house, or you’re a thrift store shopper, this casual bag is a great way to showcase the waistbands.
These oversize aprons are made from a pair of jeans.
This is literally a “jeans” jacket. A pair of thrift store jeans was restyled into a stylish jacket.
Dollar store bangles wrapped with denim strips make a trendy accessory. The strips were topstitched with Coats Jeans Topstitching thread in the authentic red-orange color.
Whether you’re covering a binder, a book, or a composition notebook, recycled denim is a great way to go. It’s fun to find an embellished pocket and re-purpose it. Adding top-stitching with Coats Jeans Thread accents the pocket.
