Blue Jean Christmas~ What is It?

   Featured @
   I created some up-cycled gifts for Mr. G from 1 pair of blue jeans. This gift was something he needed, but I mostly made it just to have a good time watching him guess what it was supposed to be. 
    None of my Face Book friends/family have guessed.  I did find this idea on Pinterest.
    What is your guess?

It was made from 1 pant leg and 2 back pockets.
The leg was cut apart at the seams,
 then sewn end to end to make 1 long strip.
Do you know what it is?
 Now do you know what it is?
Hopefully he'll put his remote and glasses in the pockets 
so he won't have to spend so much time looking for them?
The other part of the leg with the hole in the knee is used to go under the cushion 
so the pockets won't slip off the arm of his couch.
With the other pant leg, I made a couple of quick pot holders. 
Something a bachelor chef  always needs.
I also made a cloth bowl to set on his end table to collect stuff. 
We all have stuff on our end tables don't we?
I did give him a brand new pair of jeans.
So it turned out to be a Blue Jean Christmas for Mr. G.

  5. Awesome idea Joy! My hubby needs one of those for his lazy chair lol. I was going to make one last year and then never did. Best thing is I have tons of jeans, trying to come up with 101 ways to reuse jeans so you just gave me a few more ideas! Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle Sunday!
