Make a Recycled Denim Basket

It seems like I am constantly going through pairs of jeans, buying new ones to replace the most recently blown-out pairs in a constant cycle.  This, of course, means that fairly frequently I find myself wondering what to do with the ones that are starting to shred – I mean, a girl only needs so many pairs of “painting pants” in her wardrobe, and even if you cut them off into shorts, there is still the question of what to do with the leftover legs.  Well, wonder no more – Megan from Upstyler shows you how to turn an old pant leg into a cute basket for decorative storage!  What will you put in your denim basket?  [how to make a recycled denim basket]
