Waste is one of the most damaging side effect of fast fashion, it fills up land, uses us our limited fossil fuels and creates a massive amount of pollution. Constantly buying and throwing out (or shoving stuff to the back of the closet) not only damages the environment but also our bank balances and clutters up our homes. I've decided to start a series of DIYs that will hopefully inspire you to create less waste and up-cycle your old, unwanted clothes into something new that you will get loads more use out them!
Jeans are one of the most popular items of clothing, most of us have a pair (or two, or three) and we go through several in our lives. However that means ALOT gets thrown out which is a shame, denim is a very durable and versatile fabric that never goes out of fashion! Here I will show you how I gave an old pair of jeans and some scrap fabric new life by making a denim and faux leather backpack!
