Uses for the remainder from the jeans hem?

I bought a pair of $200 jeans. Because I have short, stubby legs, the store cut 7 inches off each jean leg when they hemmed them.

The store gave these two 7 inch pieces of premium denim back to me in a little plastic bag. What do I do with them?

I could just hold on to them, washing them each time I wash my jeans so that I will have a ready supply of matching denim for repairs.

I could stitch up one end and make a cute denim selvedge cap.

I could make an outrÃ
beanie baby.

I could make a street wear watchstrap for my Rolex.

I could try to sell them on e-bay.

I could just throw them away

What would you do?

Denim wrist/head band?

Denim condoms?

Frame them as modern art?

Use them as trim on another pair of jeans in a different shade?

Small denim pouch for quarters for laundry or parking meters?

Make a denim toiletry bag?

Ninja mask?

denim facemask. denim eyepatch if you're a denim pirate. denim tool holder (i've seen these) in the sda store they had a big denim chart explaining the fits and weights of their models- they had mini denim jeans made out of scraps (complete with pockets and stitching!) to show how they were cut. like this:

The denim tote on the 45RPM site is nice. With your 14" remainders, you might be able to make a small possibles/medicine bag to hang around your neck or belt, maybe fashion a bandana???

I'd cover a journal with it.

As we all know, cheapmutha covered a WalMart slip-on with selvage denim.

I'd write my lady a poem on the back of the remainder. I wanna sex you up, over and over and over.

Actually a pretty usable wallet could be made.. gear shift cover.. selvage wrist band or bowling brace.. soccer shinguards.. codpiece.. bikini (for a girl, hopefully).. the possibilities are endless.

I save them for future patchwork. And occasional fondling. A hanging trophy collection is an idea. Or made into a necklace like those of ears.

45rpm says: "We sometimes have interesting requests from customers. A customer, who loves playing golf, has ordered putter cover out of our denim fabric."
or yes save it for cool patches. premium patches, for your premium denim.
