Last Round Tuit of 2012

2012 is almost at an end! What a great year it has been. Thanks to everyone who has linked up this year - I hope you will continue to come back and link up in 2013!

Let's party...

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all, these fabulous 
jewels from hair curlers by the amazing Mich in LA:
Michelle makes jewellery from anything you can imagine - and so much that you would never imagine too!  Do pop on over to her blog and see some of her amazing creations!

Next, these great blanket transformations from Etcetorize:
A great way to use cheap fleece throws!
Tamara always has fantastic ideas and some wonderful tutorials on her blog - so go and say hello and have a browse around:

Finally, I loved these cute 
$1 Custom mobile phone covers from Diana Rambles:

One pair of jeans upcycled to all this...

From 1-24th Dec I give to you my blog advent calendar.
Each day you can click on the numbered 'door' to 'open' it and find some Christmas upcycled/recycled goodness!
Enjoy!




-------------------------------

This year I've been making some Christmas gifts from an old pair of jeans.  I've managed to use up almost the entire pair of jeans. Here's what I made...

First I made a Lesa Bag - which took up most of the fabric of the jeans. I used part of an old dressing gown for the bag lining.

Then I made a pair of pot holders from the back pockets:

Then a personalised pencil case from the remaining large leg parts:

A key-chain pouch from the last flat part of fabric:

Then finally I stitched the scraps together, braided the seams to form a handle, 

and again used part of that old dressing gown for the lining, and made another small bag:


Now all I have left is some left over seams,
Which I save for hanging loops of key-chain loops like this:

And the very last tiny scraps which I admit I threw out (gasp!!) I know - I probably should have kept them for stuffing something..or other.....

Not bad for just one old pair of jeans!
Here's another look at the final result:

I'm pretty pleased with that! 
What do you think? What have you made from old jeans?

You can go here to see lots more ideas for upcycling old jeans - or look in the Clothes Upcycling linky where there are hundreds of ideas for upcycling old clothes - and more being added all the time!



Happy Upcycling!
