Denim Jeans into What?

January 19, 2017

Hello All!  Shaunna here and I wanted to share with you my newest upcycled project!  So inconveniently enough, my dog and companion for the last 13 years has this weird habit of tearing the rear out of jeans if accidentally left on the floor (because we know that anything on the floor belongs to the dog, right?) and I guess she feels it’s her job to “clean them”.  Well, generally I’m able to patch them right up and give them back to my husband but sometimes it is not possible at all.  So, I just would launder them, fold them up and try to hide them (because if he see’s a pile of folded denim for some reason he thinks he’s going to find a clean pair of jeans there.  Nope!).  About a month or so back, I started cutting the denim in inch wide strips, braiding them together and now I’m in the process of spiraling it into the shape of an area rug while sewing it with navy blue cotton crochet thread.  Here’s what I have so far!

I’m hoping to get it finished soon.  Eventually I will be sewing in some large rubber bands on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around on the tile in my kitchen.
