Cut the legs out of an old pair of jeans. Sew a single seam making a triangular tube. Cut the narrow end to allow your hand to slip through. You now have Gardeners Gauntlets. They will keep your arms safe from thorns of all kind. Just slip your favorite gloves over them. This saves about $50 against the purchase of rose gloves and you are recycling.

I am pretty sure I linked this wrong. Here are more tips.

  1. Yes, there is a garden bloggers book club, and Carol has made the next selection. I've ordered mine. You should join us. It's fun. Go to Carol May Dreams Garden and see how they've done it in months past.

    Love your idea about the gauntlets.

  2. I love this idea. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the jeans that are getting too big for me. (Only one pair so far, but that's a start!)

  3. Hey, Dee and Christy thanks for stopping by. I have also made patchwork blankets of large squares of old denim.

    Congratulations on the too big pants, I just got back into mine after being too stuborn to buy a six sixteen.

    I am going to look into the book club sounds great.
