There's something so thrilling about a New Year! In Amy's book Vintage Notions, on the subject of a New Year, an article from Gustave Weinss in 1920 states it perfectly. "A new start enables us to go on our way encouraged, reinvigorated and determined to dare and do."

In honor of the release of our new video, Recycle Denim Jeans, we are sharing tips for working with denim all week long. Our biggest advice about working with recycled denim is to NEVER throw away the back pockets. You can use them for so many things - they are fun and functional. On this version of the Grab & Go Tote we patch-worked different colors of denim together for this purse and then added a (carefully) cut off pocket...

In honor of the release of our new video, Recycle Denim Jeans, we are sharing tips for denim all week long! One of our favorite features of denim is its rip-ability (is that a word?? It is now!).

In fact, it creates a really nice soft edge which can add layers of texture to a project....
