I had a pile of old jeans. I cut the legs off and the seams off and the hem off. I cut the remaining strips 6 inches wide and just squared the short ends.
I sewed all of them together, short sides to make one ridiculously long strip.
I cut it into 60 inch lengths and pieced it together ensuring no seams met. I sewed the seams open.
I folded it into quarters, rotary cut it square and serged around the edge.
I'm trying to figure out whether to make it a rug or a throw. I am currently washing a twin flat sheet that is going to be sewn on the back.
Quick. Easy. Comfy. Recycled. Upcycled.
There's a rather insane pile of "cut off's" in my sewing room.
The strips cut to length before the re-attachment
This is sweet... I really prefer this to square blocks
Um, perhaps the quilt should be a rug?
Quick, easy, seriously satisfying, upcycle, recycle one day project!
Go tear up some jeans!
