    I love this idea. I have SO many pairs of old jeans (my friends give them to me, don’t ask!) I am going to make these for Mother’s day. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  • That is cute! Especially love the pom pom fringing – may have to make some for that reason alone!

  • Betz, this is absolutely BRILLIANT! Love it! I have a stash of pant legs I’ve obviously been saving for a reason!

  • saw this on their blog yesterday – I’m excited to have a new project for all the jeans in the middle of our upstairs hall that have been grown out of!

  • So cute! I love the pink balls for trim–that stuff’s my favorite!

  • yep, this is the pattern for me- I love reusing old jeans, and these baskets are so great. Thanks!

  • Awesome! You are a green machine!

  • I gave away all my dismembered legs to a friend who uses the denim in quilting. But I know there will be more in my future. Now I know something to do with them!

  • These are just FABULOUS Betz. Wonderful idea.

  • Muy buena y linda idea. Muy original. Gracias por compartirla.
    Me la llevo y la hago.
    Un abrazo cariñoso,

  • Amazing Betz! They are so cool. I am going to make zillions whenever I get old or broken jeans. They are gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for sharing this!

  • What a great idea! I love the addition of the pom pom fringe along the edge, makes them so much fun!

  • Betz what a great idea….Our little group of quilters/sewers/crafters – 5 of us in total, called the Burdekin Plumtree Quilters, [fancy name…huh?] are going to do this as a challenge. We meet each Wednesday at one anothers house and craft away all day. Have yummy snacks and super yummy lunches…you need good food to do good craft…right??? So thank you from all of us. Maybe we could send you a pic or two when we finish!
