Don’t Toss It – UPCYCLE IT!

My daughter outgrows blue jeans faster than any kid I know. She wears them out so I can’t really donate them. What’s a mom to do? UPCYCLE them! I created this fun pocket refrigerator magnet from one of the pockets.

Cut out the pocket (don’t cut it off, but cut out the actual pocket). Leave about a 3/4″ strip at the top of the pocket. Place Stampin’ Up Fabric Adhesive Roll on the strip and iron inside the pocket. You can use Sticky Strip also (works great for this). Now you have a nice finished edge.

I used my Crop-a-Dile to made 2 holes in the corners and added gold Glimmer Brads, used ribbon and twine to our buttons and hot glued them in place. Our polka dot scallop ribbon adds a flash of color and finished it off with Tiny Tags and the Jewelry Tag punch.

Hot glue some heavy duty magnets on the back (I used 3 – 2 at the top and 1 at the bottom).

So much fun!!!
