Recycled Fabric

I saved a lot of my kids’ t-shirts and their jeans as they outgrew and used them to make memory quilts.  I also have a GIANT stash of jeans I collected from an elementary school rummage sale — ahem– about 10 years ago. I’ve made things into them (you can see a few below) and fully intend to use it all up at some point in my lifetime! Seriously, I have a hoarding problem with this….can’t seem to bring myself to get rid of it.
