Upcycle your old denim jeans into these useful baskets, no sewing required. One for remotes and one with a loop to hang on the coat tree for gloves. Took maybe an hour total for both and that was sewing by hand.
Recycled projects Make Today Better! These remind me of one of the greatest pencil cases that I made for my daughter by taking a pair of jeans and making it. All of her friends loved it. (says previous pinner)
