Blue Jean Bin

I got a sewing machine for Christmas. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to play around with it. Close a hole in Dave's pocket here and make a feather pillow smaller there but no real projects...until now. I found the instructions for making a bin out of old blue jeans and decided to give it a shot. My friend, Donna, is a sewing pro and came over to help me understand some of the instructions. As it turns out, sewing a circle isn't as easy as it looks. In the end I made a bin! It's not beautiful but it works and I'm pretty proud of myself! I hope to do more. I still have a couple pair of severely raggedy jeans waiting to be repurposed. Solana asked if she could have it and already invented a new use for it.
