I just made some yarn out of an old pair of jeans, and now I'm wondering what to make. I'm thinking about a bag, because this stuff is really sturdy, but what do ya'll think?

I cut mine apart until the legs lay flat, then I cut out the bulky seams and what you do is cut all the way up one side, and then stop before you go all the way, and then start cutting back from the edge again. It leaves little tabbies, but I barely notice them in mine and you can always tuck them back. Someone else used this method with flece to make yarn for a hat.

Okay, those are both really good idea! Knitting with fleece would be awesome! :-)
