Because if you are, we might just be able to help you!
Turn them into denim shorts!
You want to start with the easiest one? Turn them into shorts! All you need is pair of fabric cutting scissors, and you’ll be done in a minute. Want to make it more interesting? Buy yourself a fabric dye of your choice, add it to water, submerge your denim shorts in it, and take it out after about 20 minutes. Voila! You’ll have a dyed pair of shorts! You can do the same with your jeans, without cutting them as well.
Donate them, or better recycle them!
We’ve all heard of recycling paper, plastic, glass and what not. But, denim doesn’t really strike as something that needs to be, or even can be recycled. The fact is, denim is a very good insulator of heat. We do love wearing jeans during winters, don’t we! And so, denim works great when used in manufacturing building insulation. And there are a lot of charities who collect denim for the purpose.
Make clothes for your pooch!
Your pets could use some stylish denim clothes, don’t you think! If you’re someone who loves to indulge in various DIY projects or just have a knack for designing, and you have access to a pair of scissors, maybe a sewing machine, and some other accessories you love – you can turn your old pairs of jeans into an haute couture for your beloved pet! What dog doesn’t look good in denim shirts now, right!
These are a few of the fun things you can do with your old distressed jeans, instead of throwing them out! Tell us, which of these ways did you like the most?
