Old jeans are wonderful things. Years ago I made a clothes-pin bag out of some old jeans. I sewed up the legs but didn't cut them off. The dangly legs made a handy handle to slide the thing along the line with. I also made my daughter a handbag out of an old pair of jeans when she was a teenager. (I got rid of the legs on that one!) And if you have enough pairs and enough patience, you can make a sturdy warm quilt. On another nostalgic trip, if you have a kid with an outgrown T-shirt they can't bear to part with you can sew them up, stuff them and they become throw (or cuddle) pillows.
