Korgar av jeans / Baskets from jeans
Ni som följer oss vet att vi älskar att återanvända saker vi har hemma. Ofta ligger det en hög med grejer och väntar på att blir omgjorda. Högen med trasiga jeans har på sista tiden vuxit oroväckande och det dags att göra något åt den. Ni behöver utslitna jeans, tråd och nål. 1.

Korgarna är lite mjuka och man kan inte stoppa för tunga saker i dem men i vårt pysselskåp passar de utmärkt. Those of you who follow us know that we love to recycle things we have at home. You need worn out jeans, thread and needle. 1. We have decorated our baskets with pieces of ribbons. The baskets are a bit soft and you want put heavy stuff in them, but as containers for our craft supplies they’re perfect.

I actually made these several years ago for the website I used to own, FamilyCorner.com.

Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn Another tutorial to help save our Mother Earth by turning unwanted items into something useful. This is the yarn ball I made out of an old T-shirt which I have been wearing for 10 years day-in day-out, wash-in wash-out. It finally broke down and tore at the collar and sleeves. Waste not, want not, I decided to recycle it. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above. Please click here to have a look and you can download the simple pattern I created.
