Quick & Easy Hand Sewn Upcycled Denim Storage Basket
Do you have old denim jeans you'd like to get rid of? Why not upcycle and turn the legs into cute storage baskets! So easy to do and you just need to hand sew three short seams?
First, cut off twelve inches of the leg portion.
Turn inside out and hand stitch, with a needle and thread, a seam about an half inch from cut off edge. Pull open leg and match center seams together, flatten, creating a triangular shape. Hand stitch across about two inches from pointed end. Stitch opposite side, making sure the triangles are even.
There you have it . . . just three seams!
Turn right side out and fold down outside hem. Ta Da!
