good morning everyone.
i need your help.
i just got a huge garbage bag of old jeans to make rag quilts.
some time ago i read on here, how to cut jeans to get the most fabric from them, i thought i bookmarked it.
i have done several searches and can't seem to find it.
does anyone know where to find this?
thank you in advance.
hope it helps
or go to search at the top of the page.....type in blue jean or rag quilt....there are many posts here
I made a denim quilt from old jeans but it isn't the rag style. Like a fool I sat and took every seam out so that all that was left were the front pockets and the waist band/zipper. From some of the jeans I even cut the pockets and used them. I learned that it is easier to just cut down each seam. Sorry that I couldn't help. Good luck.
I still need to cut mine up.
I have 3 large tubs full of bkue jeans so am going to worry how I cut them up!
thanks ladies, but if i remember right there were pictures of how it was done.
i am a visual person. :roll:
http://blankie.made4usa.com/HelpfulH...pfulHints.html I learned quite a bit from this site. I just cut off all the seams and save pieces that aren't stained, ripped or too thin. I'm still trying to figure out how to incorporate some pockets into a quilt.
