For months I have been collecting denim resources. Last week on the trip to the local transfer station I stopped in the swap shack. This is a shed where people put items too good to toss but they no longer need. Free exchange and recycling at its best. There I discovered 12 pairs of blue jeans in sizes ranging from 4 through 14. I have been waiting for just this type of find - resources for a project. In Pinterest I've been collecting denim ideas. The interweb is filled with creative blue jean ideas. I'll share some ideas over the next few days. Today I'll focus on denim pockets. Here are some great ideas for recycling jeans pockets.
Check out these round beauties from Finland.
Use pockets in multiple sizes to create this craft center organizing wall hanging...

Or this wall hanging from the Netherlands...
I simply love this bag that uses a little more than the pockets...
This notebook cover combining ribbon and a denim pocket is stunning, although in this digital age my notebook use is nearly nil.
This placement makes great use of the pocket for the napkin and silverware.

But there is so much more to jeans than just the pockets. More to follow in the next post.......
