For this week's clothes upcycle for my challenge, I chose a pair of jeans and a black and white stripy top.
The jeans had cute sparkly back pockets
- so I made a pencil case using one of those, with the tutorial I produced a couple of weeks ago for funky pencil cases from jeans!
I also unpicked the zip from the jeans and used that to make a triangle pouch - following again my own tutorial.
I also made a fabric basket, using part of one of the jeans legs.
And a small tissue pouch using the bottom hem of the jeans!
And finally an elephant keychain stuffed with some of the scraps, again, using my own tutorial.
I still have a couple of pockets, the waistband, seams and some of the fabric left over.
So plenty more projects possible there!
Not bad from just one pair of jeans and a top.
To see what else I've made from clothes for my challenge this year so far - go here.
And for lots more of my free sewing tutorials (over 100 of them),
I would love it if you followed me on Facebook too - where I share plenty of upcycling ideas and projects.
