    they are really cute - wonder if you could use the side seams as well -- they would be longer and possibly not need sewn together

    Thanks for posting this again. Believe it or not I am sitting here with the seams from flannel shirts doing just this. I remember your tut about the jeans and I thought why not use the flannel shirt seams? They are coming out great. Thank you for your idea.

    Crafty Bear, Here are the coasters with the flannel seams. One I rolled tighter but I think they turned out nicely. What do you think?

    Craftybear thanks for the link,

    Ann L - your flannel coasters look great.

    I have stacks of jeans for jean quilts, now I can use the side seams as well as the hems.

    What a great idea, and great site! Did you see her denim eyelet tote:

    I bet you could recycle jeans for this as well.

    I just tossed a couple of my dad's flannel shirts in the wastebasket in the laundry room (they were falling apart). I am going to have to pull them back out and try the coasters, thanks for the idea Ann.
