We had so much fun and so many very nice denim gifts many of us wanted to do this again. I am hoping you will join in on this swap to make your swap partner something using an old pair of denim jeans. You can find jeans/denim in thrift shops and garage sales, if you don't have some on hand.

You will only swap with one partner.

There are many items on Pinterest using denim jeans: aprons, purses, Christmas ornaments, Christmas stockings, wall pocket organizers, and more. If you are like me, we don't need any more tote or shopping bags, but purses, computer bags, and cell phone cases can be handy. Here is just one Pinterest link- scroll down the page to see lots of ideas. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/3940718410550013/?utm_campaign=category_rp&e_t=62ce741d235249d391e5e39f3ef9ffe5&utm_source=31&utm_medium=2012&utm_content=3940718410550013&utm_term=11&news_hub_id=5186404114275288717

Pinterest is a super place to find great Recycled Denim projects. Or adapt a pattern you love to denim. So many great ideas. In the first Recycled Denim Swap we were gifted a hat, purse, organizer, rug, pumpkins, notebook cover, banner, zippered bag, Feathered wallhanging, embroidered patches, trees, wreath, pillow, clothespin bag, and more. So many creative things. What can we come up with for this swap?

If you have made things out of jeans, please let us know what you make. It's fun to find out how others recycle denim.

Signups until September 22, partners posted September 23rd.
Sendout no later than October 15, just in time for fall. Start making your projects now so they are ready to send out.

I hope you will join us!

After signups, please contact your partner for address. If you don't get a response please let me know and I will try to contact them. I can't wait to see your creativity.

Partners:
Linda (quiltee) and Dianna (Suny58)
Marie (Churunga) and Wanda (Wanda Sue)
Marilyn (TexasGran) and Gwendolyn (gwennierenee)

I'm in.

I don't mind receiving a tote bag as long as it is unique. I'd love to have a slightly padded computer bag sized 14 1/2" X 9 1/2" X 3/4". Or just make me something that you would like to receive.

No problem. We are leaving Saturday for probably 2 weeks - to Hannibal, Missouri, Wisconsin Dells; and Grand Rapids, MI. I put due date as middle of October, anyway. LOL!

Dianna - please send me your address again. I know I have it somewhere. LOL!

I also may be late with my project. I have been taking care of end of life stuff for an old friend. He died in the hospital with only myself by his side. It is a sad story. I will have most things wrapped up in a week.

So sorry about your friend Marie, I understand perfectly.
