Upcycling Denim Projects

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials, like an old pair of denim jeans or skirt, and turning it into a useful craft or clothing item. It's an eco-friendly way to re-use old clothing. Upcycling is ushering in an entirely new wave of entrepreneurial innovations, because buyers feel they are contributing to saving the planet. It is also a way to use your sewing skills to save money.

We have recycled materials that were headed for the trash in these two posts, here and here, but now we'll look at denim.

There's no limit to what you can make, or what you can design and sell.
