Making this 'n that.

Fancy doing a spot of sewing this week?
Nothing too complicated.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Got a pair of jeans that don't fit anymore?
Or a pair that is a bit worn out or daggy?
Look no further! This is what you can do with them -

There are many on-line tutorials about making jeans bags - or you can probably hoe to work it out yourself.
There's one is here on craftbits. That one actually glues the bottom shut! But I'd prefer to stitch it closed and some use ribbon or even a tie for handles - I like that you use another part of the jeans for a strap.

How about making your own pj pants or sleep pants?

Pjs don't have to be perfectly constructed, they just need to be comfortable.
I like that these have got a contrast trim at the bottom.

I love lot of little storage bags, but zips and other closures can be fiddly.
This great little tute shows you how to make bags that snap shut.
Shhh, there's a secret to doing that....

I love the denim bag. My mother and aunt used to make bags out of old jeans . . . I still have one made out of the old jeans I wore when I was like 17 . . . that's quite a few years ago. Also like that cord idea . . . I may have to make some of those.

How cool! My daughter and I always meant to make some jeans bags but never got round to it. Must keep an old pair just for that purpose.

Those doo-dads are perfect. I'm going to set about making me some of them.
