An upcycled denim project that helps you organize your shelves? Yes, please!
I love using little bowls and baskets around the house to kind of wrangle some of the tiny clutter that seems to sneakily pile up on every surface. We have a bowl in our foyer to keep keys and sunglasses and baskets on our shelves to organize our kid's toys, video game controllers, and my craft supplies. This upcycled denim basket would be the perfect addition to my ecclectic organizational system!
The Renegade Seamstress created this tutorial to use as an Easter basket, but I could see it working well for my son's little sets of blocks or in an entryway to collect keys, wallets, and other random pocket items in a more organized way.
Her tutorial is over at eHow, and you only need a few simple supplies:
- upcycled denim - Old jeans work best for this project
- fabric scissors - Cutting denim with dull scissors is no fun, and it's hard to cut a straight line without nice, sharp shears.
- hot glue gun - A crafter's best friend!
- ruler or tape measure
