DIY: Upcycled No Sew Denim Basket (And Another Give Away)

I have to say, this latest slide show tutorial I did for eHow has got to be one of my favorites! Not only do I love the basket, but I’m thrilled with the images, too. Everything about this makes me happy!

I can’t wait for you to see this one!

Mary Dacuma, the Content Manager for eHow, gave me the the challenge to create a slide show tutorial for a refashioned denim basket for Easter. I told her I was up to the task, collected all of Steve’s old Carharts, and started snipping away to create this no sew basket tutorial that could be used, not only for Easter, but all year round.


I hope you’ll head over to eHow and check out the rest of this quick and easy basket tutorial slide show. I worked so hard on making the pictures beautiful for you and if you like what you see while scrolling through the slide show, it would mean the world to me if you’d make a comment there and then pin the tutorial to one of your Pinterest boards. To thank you for taking the time to comment and pin, your name will be entered into a drawing to win this denim basket. The lucky winner will be announced on Saturday, February 8, 2014.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has been so supportive in my latest adventure. I wish I had the words to express how lucky I am to have you all in my corner cheering me on! None of this would be possible without all of you.

Now enough of me talking, I can’t wait to hear what you think about this project.

  4. Hi

    Replying here as couldn’t find anywhere to make comments on ehow – (comments button was just text) or to pinterest etc. (I manually copied it to pin. and Fbook – as I thought my friends would enjoy it).

    I think this basket is lovely – well done.

    Our old jeans get turned into farm or garden jeans so not much left for making baskets J

    This is wonderfully unique; I especially like that you used the threads for “straw” – it’s the icing on the cake! You have a very creative mind, Beth 🙂

    I don’t have a facebook account, either, and couldn’t seem to leave a comment on ehow without setting one up – sorry 😦

    Love it! I am a basket/container addict and I love anything involving jeans. I have a little addition to Pinterest so it’s pinned!

  16. Crystal says:

    I’m always looking for new ways to use old, worn out jeans but I’m new to refashioning my other clothes, I just wore them until they couldn’t be worn anymore. I’m so excited to renew so much of my wardrobe! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
