Just like the Denim Bracelets Trio yesterday, here’s another recycling denim project that stretches the imagination. The Band Together Tote however, did bring a smile to my face for its ingenuity.
While the Shirr Thing Bag from Thursday’s post this week required a softer, lighter weight denim fabric, the Band Together Tote is made of ‘fabric’ that is inherently sturdy to begin with. Using the jeans waist bands makes the fabric very solid, as if ‘stabilized’. This is a sturdy tote!
Whether you have old jeans around the house, or you’re a thrift store shopper, this casual bag is a great way to showcase the waistbands. And, you can save the rest for other recycling projects. A hint of the stripe lining bands the top and a handy fob keeps your keys within easy reach.
I enjoyed sharing five ways to recycle denim projects this week with you. I hope you’ll explore your own creativity by adding your own personal touch to the suggested denim projects. These great ideas have all been designed by Coats’ very own Linda Turner Griepentrog.
