What do u do when a pair of jeans die?

What do you do when a pair of jeans die? Well most people would throw them away but not me.. is it that I hoard? won't let things go? or do I have a greater plan for them in their 'next life'?
Well in this case it was a rather nice pair of jeans that I had many ideas of what I could upcycle them into now that they had the rather inconveniently placed tear in the fabric. I took great pleasure in taking a pair of sharp scissors to a leg of the jeans and shredding it into more usable pieces.
So from the one leg of the jeans I made a large pom pom brooch, pom pom necklace and denim wrapped pom pom bangle too :)
Now what to do with the other leftover leg, any ideas?

I'm linking this to some of the lovely parties on the right and also to Little Miss Momma's Pom Pom Party

These are really cute, but I can't figure out how you did it. Do you have another tutorial showing?

Brilliant idea steph, they look great! I challenge you to make a handbag with the rest. I have seen them in shops, they use the bum part as the bag and a leg for the strap. Have fun. Donna x
