Friday Favorites–Jean Therapy

Do you remember a time when denim wasn’t in everyone’s closet?  Since their rise to popularity in the 50’s, the styles and colors of jeans, jackets and skirts have varied, but they never disappear.  I’m personally trying to work a few non-denim items into my wardrobe to break up my daily jeans routine, but I’ve noticed an upsurge in denim for decorating lately as well.  I thought I’d go ahead and embrace it and introduce you to a few projects that celebrate the blue in our red, white and blue.

I’ve seen lots of these denim pocket organizers, but what I really like about this one from Sisters of the Wild West is the use of both big and small pockets.

I know these cute cutoffs from Make It and Love It are meant for little girls, but I think with the right fabric I could pull it off.

Don’t miss the first two words in the title of this project from I Love to Create:  No Sew Denim Mini Bag.

This denim wedding dress from Bella Vittoria on Etsy is a bold choice, but perfect for a country wedding.

When you cut up old jeans for a project, sometimes it’s difficult to find a good use for the seams.  Start saving them up for this Flat Felled Seam Denim Bag from Penny Rugs and More.

I love all of these denim pillows from Ashbee Design, but that ampersand might be my favorite.

There’s not an actual tutorial for this top from Of Dreams and Seams, but I thought it was just to impressive not to share.

I don’t think you’d guess it from the photo, but this quilt from I Quilt for Fun is made from recycled jeans.  The sashing really makes it beautiful!

You can even work a little denim into your jewelry, like this necklace from Bubbly Nature Creations.
