Another use for old blue jeans! I made a pair of great bibs from this post: http://www.thimblythings.com/2009/06/01/in-praise-of-denim-bibs/
Picture
For the first bib I used a pair of Rami's old jeans. I loved the embroidered butterflies! I backed this bib with some light pink cotton.

Picture
I tried ribbon on the 2nd bib - I used a pretty kelly green ribbon and used a lighter green to zig zag across the ribbon. I put the ribbon at an angle so that I didn't have to worry about keeping the ribbon straight. I backed this bib with a pale mint cotton scrap (I have lots and lots of scraps)

Picture
The pattern wasn't that hard with the minor exception that I had a hard time following the curves. I should tell you that I can't sew straight either :). Over all I really enjoyed making the bibs and am looking forward to making more!

Let us know if you have any great recycling jeans ideas!! Thanks for reading, Millie
