We all have that one pair of jeans that we just can’t bear to part with, even though we’ve outgrown them. I know that once I fall in love with a pair of jeans, I will literally wear them until they’re patched, frayed, or basically falling apart. But if you’re like me and hate throwing away clothes that still have some potential, then this list of denim sewing patterns and refashioning projects is completely perfect for you. These super fun DIY projects are a great way to transform old denim into stylish accessories, clothing, and home decor projects that look totally brand new! The best part about these refashioning projects is that you already have your fabric, meaning these projects are incredibly budget-friendly.
