You will need:
We rinsed out the can.
Cutting along the double stitched seam of the pants leg, make a flat piece of denim.
Wrap the denim around the can, so it fits just under the top lip and cut it to fit the bottom edge.
Mark where you need to cut it to get it to fit vertically and horizontally.
Cut the old denim jean fabric.
Tacky glue the denim into place.
Cut a small slit in the lid for the coin hole.
Lie the lid on a flat piece of denim and using a marker outline a circle about 1/4 wider than the lid.
Cut the circle.
Tacky glue the circle over the lid, making sure you use glue around the edges.
Use a rubber band to hold that in place around the lid, while you embellish the bank.
Some ideas for embellishment are:
- using the inner seam of the jeans to run up the side of the bank.
- faux fur
- hand-drawn artwork
Use sharp scissors to cut the opening in the denim where the opening in the lid is.
