My Denim Throw

I have been collecting denim jeans for quite awhile, picking the odd pair up at the bazaars that I have been going to during the winter months. I cut them up into rectangles the size of a cd box. ( I used one to cut them out. ) When I had cut them all out I sewed them all together on my sewing machine.

SV203428

The seams are 1/2 inch wide and are on the right side.

SV203429

Quite colourful with all the different denims.

I have sewed them all together, now I have to sit and clip all those seams every 1/2 inch so that when it is washed and dried they fray and go fluffy. Well that’s the idea anyway. There is only one snag with this for I don’t have a tumble drier.  Anyway got to go I have a pair of scissors waiting for me. x

That's neat. In addition to a throw, the resulting fabric would make a neat skirt, or tote bag, or lots of other stuff. So many good ideas here! Very nice!

i've been collecting denim for a few years and waiting for inspiration to make one of these. my aunt had one that was always being drug outside by us kids for picnic lunches, laying in the sun or reading under a tree. you can always use the fluff dryer at the laudromat.
