Turn the legs of your old jeans into fabric baskets. This tutorial gives measurements for making 3 different sizes of baskets. This is quite clever. They would look quite nice on a dresser for loose stuff.
Do you have old t-shirts that you dont wear anymore but dont want to give away? Why not turn them into a cute bedside rug for yourself! Its a beautiful project you can do, especially if your shirts are in rich and vibrant colours!
