DIY Recycling & Fashion: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: Stain Old Blue Jeans with Coffee Grounds for Vintage Look & Open Source Sewing Patterns

Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson

 

ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne found a package of expired coffee in a dumpster, and show how to use it to stain old blue jeans, giving them a vintage, antique look. Also, a look at "Weird Web Wears" and an interview with the creative gals over at Burda Style about their open source sewing patterns.

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
