  1. These are all great ideas for upcycling thoses jeans. I especially like the bags with the quotes on them and those pot holders with the jeans pockets. I like the bonus of being able to slip fingers into the pockets on the one side to help to keep those fingertips from getting burned. Very clever!

  2. Such good ideas! :)
