    I make small purses for the granddaughters or larger purses for the older kids. Just cut off the pant legs. sew a seam across the bottom of the fabric and decorate with fringe or any fancy material. Make handles for over the shoulder, with more denim pieces or buy heavy ribbon, etc. . For the little purses cut 2 pieces of denim, sew together leaving top open and attach any fancy rope for the handle

    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776

    OR

    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    Old jeans make wonderful quilts. I have made a patchwork (even included the pockets on some squares) and a frayed edge blanket. I wanted to do a rag rug but haven't yet.
