With growing boys, I have had my share of well-used blue jeans. Here are a few things I did to get one more use out of them:
I cut the pocket out (still attached to the jeans) and used a hole punch to put two holes in the top, then put yarn through the holes and hung in the kitchen for a bread tie holder. I also used it to hold recipe cards, thread, and those small objects that just seem to accumulate in the junk drawer and often poke you in the finger!
I have also attached magnets on the back with super glue and used on the fridge for a note pad and pen. I cut the legs off and duct taped the bottom together and used the bag to tote garden tools around.

great ideas! my dd, 5yrs old, used to love to pretend she is a kitty and she has a few pairs of jeans that she has torn knees out of, so i cant possibly give them to someone else, now i know what to do with these. Thank you for sharing, will definately do this with her old pants.

Good ideas Renee. Thanks for sharing. I cut the legs off, and sew them, making a long sort of bag, with a drawstring closing top... Hang in the back of the closet to store a few things...
