Recycling your old denim jeans

I was watching Alter Eco on Planet Green and they mentioned that denim jeans are being reused for insulation in homes. Specifically, Habitat For Humanity is using this insulation in the re-building of homes in New Orleans. You can actually help by donating your old denim jeans. If you go here, you can find out more information.

Now, if you'd rather reuse your jeans for a more crafty purpose, go here are some other ideas, like the rug shown.

There's always the ever popular jean purse, jean skirt and jean wallet. There are tons of different versions of these out there.

I've also seen aprons, I've seen flip flops, costumes, and the list goes on.

Here are some things I found along the way:
"12 quick projects" you can do with denim.

A very cool site, Cut Out + Keep. They have a denim wrench set holder, coasters, and storage boxes and they tell you how to make it all! Very cool!!!
