Weaving strips of jeans

with No Comments

 

Today I have been continuing on a rather long-winded project. In the autumn I decided to recycle all these many pairs of jeans I had lying around that didn’t fit any more. It all started with a post on Grey Duckling asking ‘how would you refashion jeans?‘. This gave some great ideas and I went ahead and made 9 project bags out of the top of the jeans and the bottom of sweaters.

The current project uses the legs of the jeans cut into strips. I am weaving these strips together with a twill weave of 2 over and 1 under. The jeans are all different shades of blue so I am using this to create a rug that will varigate from lighter to darker blues.

Oh and happy spring – the snowdrops our out in my garden.
