When you look at an instruction book it tells you how to make something and then often shows you an example of it being made amazingly well, looking stunning.
You won't find that here, the pictures of the products look awful, nothing is lined or finished properly(if I saw someone wearing any of this and it wasn't a fancy dress party, I don't know), some of the 99 things are repetitions or just lazy as hell and it doesn't really tell you how to make anything properly, just patterns which look like they could have been drawn on a napkin.
I have made and sold things from recycled jeans at craft fairs and would honestly have been embarrassed if I was selling anything that looked like the finished products in this book. As well, the photography is poor, it looks like a collaborative effort from a gcse Design and Technology class.
But maybe I'm not the target audience, maybe they're going for a gcse D+T audience.

HASH(0x9993f90c) out of 5 stars Something for everyone! 19 Mar. 2007
By CC - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I just got my copy of the book in the mail today and I can't wait to try out some of these projects. Each one has a star system to indicate the degree of difficulty, clear directions, photos and illustrations and I think that there's something here for everyone, beginner sewers to advanced. I love the variety of projects. Lots of adorable clothing ideas (tops, skirts, pants, jackets, shorts, culottes...) and also really functional projects too, like a bath mat, a heating pad, a chair cover, a cd organizer for your car. I've been sewing for years (I used to work in a tailorshop) and believe me when I say that the glossary in the back is a real gem of ideas and information! It explains all the techniques used, terminology, patternmaking...lots of great stuff here to get you inspired and create new things from all your old jeans!

HASH(0x99be942c) out of 5 stars Great ideas and diagrams! 6 July 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I am very impressed with the ideas in this book - not just refashioning clothing, but using jeans for everything from skirts & shirts to bags, cd organizers, and mail sorters. Brilliant stuff. Very well executed too - no complex patterns here, not too many details. My only complaints would be (1) They really could have stopped at 30 or 50... with 99 designs some were "reaching" a bit (and some were longer/shorter/backward versions of practically the same things)... (2) they may have oversimplified a bit - without real patterns or sizing, I wonder how these will turn out.... (3) What, no blanket/quilt idea? Or curtains? That seemed so obvious! But otherwise, certainly great ideas here and very innovative and easy... a good starting point!

HASH(0x99b94c9c) out of 5 stars Hours of fun and creativity!! 7 Mar. 2007
By Elena Whatley - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I have a daughter who is getting into sewing and I bought her this book. It's absolutely perfect for the beginner but I can see that as her skills grow, she'll still have lots of projects to work on. We are having a sleep over with all of her friends and everyone's bringing thier old jeans. Not everyone can sew but with all the cool ideas in this book, I know that they will all go home with the coolest jeans around. Talk about a super fun, educational, rewarding party!! I would buy this book for all your creative friends and family. Perfect for the pre-teens and fashionista's.

HASH(0x9993c660) out of 5 stars even better than the first! 5 April 2007
By Rachel Schau - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I personally am a HUGE fan of the first "99 ways" book. I made tons of my old t-shirts destined for the trash, into some new, avant-garde, ultra-wearable items! I didn't think the new denim book would even be able to compare to the old book. Boy, was I wrong!! This new denim book has so many unique and creative ideas to dress up your denim into new and fabulously useful items. This book even has awesome new pictures of the finished items to accompany the very talented drawings! I love that I can see a true sample of each item. I've already made the ipod case (Zack) and really cute bag (Lily). I use both all the time and they are essential, yet functional and very very stylish. I can't wait to make more denim items.
I would highly recommend this book to any one who needs to spice up their wardrobes, their coffee tables, or their lives.

HASH(0xa055b8a0) out of 5 stars dope dope dope 3 April 2007
By Emily M. Spire - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
this book is super dope. of course there are 99 different projects and so the book is aptly titled 99 ways to cut sew and deck out your denim. page after page i found myself saying "why didn't i ever think of that?" super cool designs at every level from pretty easy to really hard. the best part is that i have the first book, 99 ways to cut sew and tie your t-shirt, and together, the duo looks pretty cool together on my coffee table and a major conversation piece! Love these books, more please!
