Over the past view days, we have been having tons of fun!! There is nothing like thrifting and making old things new again, also known in the eco-friendly world as repurposing.

It’s the time of year when the kids go back to school. Them wanting new clothes paired with a struglling economy is the absolute PERFECT time to implement creativity. Alexis and I decided to throw out some ideas to make old jeans brand new… With a few household items and a little creativity, the possiblities are endless!

Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to…










Some of the techniques we used…

  • Environmentally safe color remover
  • Non-toxic fabric dye and markers
  • Soaking white or “bleached” denim in coffee overnight to give it a dingy, brownish tint
  • Sandpaper and razor blades to give the distressed look

Hopefully, these are tips you can’t wait to try. This is one of things where “Being fashionable doesn’t have to cost a fortune!” Have fun and we would love for you to send us some of your pictures. We can post them on here on our blog! Send your photos to!
