I needed pockets!
Not just any kind, oh no!
I needed w i d e l o a d pockets!
(Yes, just like my jeans....but I'm still wearing mine!)
I sent up my prayers to St. Jude (lost causes) and St. Anthony (lost items) to please send me jeans that needed to be recycled. I even had a little talk with St. Anne (seamstresses and old clothes dealers.)
I wanted larger pockets to put inside my tote bags...you've always got those little things that you're toting around, but if you're not careful, they get lost in the bottom of your bag. The smaller totes (purses) have two pockets...one inside and one on the outside. But, they can use the smaller size pockets from the jeans. I needed BIGGER pockets for the large totes!!!!
My prayers were answered.
I was tagging items at the Center on Tuesday, and I spied a bag with jeans that had been donated!
Thank you Jude, Anthony and Anne!!!!
And, while I was cutting pockets, I went ahead and got the jeans ready to be cut into strips for rugs at the Center. This tub holds the seams that were cut out of the jeans.....surely they, too, can be recycled????
So, I'm back in production mode, sewing on pockets and finishing seams! And, I'm sending out the call for old jeans..........
.............send me your tired, worn out jeans. I will make them live again!!!!
