We all have old pants sitting around the house that don't fit us any more. Okay, maybe that's only me. But you must have some jeans that have worn out knees or holes all over the place--right?
Well, if you do, why not find a way to put those jeans to use. How about repurposing them for back-to-school gear: Like a locker organizer. It's EZ-smeezy. All you have to do is cut the pants off at the legs, sew a seam that seals the opening. Sew a couple straps on the top, then flip 'em around so the pockets can be used to hold combs, makeup, pencils or anything else. The straps can be tied onto the locker for strong support. Your kids can decorate them with buttons, ribbon or appliques.
Send your kids back to school with repurposed jeans - it's sooo kewl :)
Here's one free pattern.
