Ok, I’ll admit that this is way too easy, but it serves some big purposes! I love EASY and quick! I definitely had plenty of old jeans I could choose from to do this project! Although, I didn’t just use one pant leg…I made a few of these!
Not only do these make great little storage containers, but they make awesome and rather unique containers to put gifts in! Since watching this tutorial, I’ve made several of these and used them like I would a gift box. They make such a great presentation and my friends not only loved what was inside of them, but are using these for different purposes around their homes!
I’ve put old brooches that I’ve picked up, at thrift stores, on the outside of the ones I’ve given away and they look darling! I’ve even added some great looking trim to some of them. I use mine for my makeup brushes, but you can use these for a wide variety of things and make more than one!
You don’t necessarily need to use a sewing machine to make these. I used my sewing machine, but some of you don’t own a sewing machine. As you can see, she didn’t use one and they come out just as cute.
Watch this step by step tutorial and whip some of these up for yourself and your loved ones!
