8 ways to upcycle jeans

Today I’m contributing to the Kids Clothes Week blog with an inspiration post about upcycling jeans. So I thought it would be fun to give an overview of my own denim creations here.
1. One of the very first items I ever sewed was this cute denim dress for my daughter. Of course, I made a lot of beginner’s errors; for example using some very sturdy jeans, which made the dress rather stiff. Nevertheless, it is still one of my favorite creations. If only because my little girl looked so incredibly cute in it.

2. Next, I upcycled jeans into some colorful skirts (before my life as a blogger).

3. I used denim to create fun knee patches

8. And a sweater with denim details

(Love to see how my little girl has grown in the past five years...)

Need more inspiration? I collected a lot of ideas on this Pinterest board. Or hop over to the Kids Clothes Week blog to read more.


  1. Toffe collectie! Ben vooral fan van de jurk, de sterrenbroek, de bubble short en de "M" sweater. Fijne ideetjes!

  2. Dank dat je mijn broek opnam op je pinterest-board; zo ontdekte ik je blog; leuk!
