Every year we have one yard sale. Our annual spring cleaning for this year yielded more stuff than ever before. It seems impossible, but there is never a shortage of stuff we have outgrown or that has outlived its usefulness in our home. I guess part of that is the result of growing chilldren. Our yard sale is just around the corner. If you have one on the horizon, be sure to check out our yard sale tips from last summer. This is an invaluable resource to get you on the right track.
As usual, before I could let anything go, I had to sift through it to determine if any of the goods could be repurposed for other upcycling projects. I love getting extra uses out of discards. What I found, among other things, was a pile of kids jeans. I have been meaning to do a project like this one for some time. This hidden treasure proved to be just the inspiration I needed.
The pockets of the kids jeans are smaller than those of adult jeans and just the right size to hold a napkin and cutlery. Because they are already finished, they give a hint of authenticity to the project without me having to recreate a pocket. The overall result is fun, cheap, and very stylish.
