How to redesign old jeans - 15 denim refashion ideas

How to redesign old jeans! I had fun making this list of 15 denim refashion ideas. A refashion lets you update the jeans to be more fun but many of these would work well for hiding stains too! While most of them are shown on adult jeans, I think many of them would work well for kid’s clothes refashioning too.

Have you ever refashioned jeans? New pairs of denim require a staggering amount of water to produce (read more here) and one of the best ways to avoid contributing to that is to makeover your old jeans instead of buying new ones! Plus, it’s fun.

While you’re here, you’ll want to check out these posts too!
