This title in the Planet Girl series features 17 injeanious projects that transform old jeans into stylish and functional new clothes and stuff. Not only are these projects bank-account friendly -- they're environmentally friendly, too! How injeanious is that? Tired jeans are revived with funky cuffs or a waistband. Dreary denim is reborn as skirts, halter tops, slippers, purses, carry-all bags, wallets or bolsters. Illustrated step-by-step instructions for these and many other projects show girls how to make their jeans look better the second time around.

In the book that sent the Planet Girl series into orbit, old jeans turn into stylish DIY self-expression for girls.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8–Warwick combines a love of denim with some simple crafts that will have readers thinking and feeling like fashion designers. The projects use old jeans and show how, with some simple embellishments and very little cash, they can create a whole new wardrobe, among other items. The book begins with all the important stuff such as parental permission to cut up clothing and the basics of sewing and working with the fabric. It includes 17 projects from re-wearable jeans to purses and wallets to bolsters and footstools to halters and skirts and more. All include clear, easy-to-follow instructions and informative illustrations. The artist has depicted a variety of hip-looking girls in cartoon style to help show the way. They provide an energetic invitation to try the projects. Many of the crafts could be done in a classroom or library setting–if you can get the volume away from the girls long enough to plan the program. –Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
