This "injeanious" spiral bound DIY book encourages thrift and reuse and promotes creativity with seventeen sewing projects made from recycled jeans (or pieces of them).

I picked up this book from the library as I prepared for a preteen sewing class I was teaching.

Finally, a reliable, well instructed pattern for turning old cut-off jeans into your next favorite skirt. It has directions for things as simple as adding cute cuffs to your jeans, to slippers out of jean pockets, which are only slightly more complicated. An inJEANious little book, with great basics for first time crafters, or back to basics for veterans.

Juvenile crafting books are often overlooked. This one should not be. Makes me want to see if there are any more Planet Girl craft books.

Even though this is a dated title, I found it a better resource that any of the other 'recycled denim' books I've looked at. It goes farther than just 'inspiration', it includes specific how-to's as well as the steps needed in order to create. Highly recommend this title for any 'crafter' or soon to be 'crafter'.

Who wouldn't want slippers made of from the back pockets of a pair of jeans?
