Jeans Cover for 3 ring binder - Cover a 3 ring binder with an old pair of jeans - what teen wouldn't like this?
I don't know why but I have saved my husband's and son's jeans that they have outgrown or simply do not wear anymore. Would like some ideas for making use of the material. Our 12 yo daughter has taken the pockets and filled them with rice then sewing the top closed for "bean" bags. I know you can make purses out of the top halves but I feel kind of awkward carrying a buttocks around under my arm, you know? Do you have any other ideas?
