I have  cut old jeans  on squares, then have sewed them together and have quilted  it. It seems nicely to me... Cheesy

That looks great did you use a backing on it to make it thicker?

I have been meaning to make a jeans rug so I can use it for outdoor picnics! Unfortunately, I don't have any sewing experience, and I have no idea how to attach the pieces (I am assuming I need a sewing machine).  Please advise me on how to go about making my own rug. Smiley

Ooh, that's so terrific! You got it so crisp looking, something I find hard to do with thick denim. The egde binding and the quilting really make it special. What did you use for the back? And did you use batting or something else in between the layers?
I'm going to think about about making a denim rug. I saw one that was all raw edges overlapped and frayed that looked really good too. Denim is one of those things that it's just so easy to reuse.

Thank you for comments, girls..

English is given to me hardly, however I will try to tell to you details. Grin

I used a tight woollen cloth as a batting and  cotton fabric with polyester for backing (it's more hard-wearing/wearproof ). If you are afraid of the rug will slip on a floor you can sew also small slices of corrugated rubber from a wrong side...

My rug is sewed as usual pieced quilt. At first I have collected jeans squares to strips, then have sewed those strips  together.
Look that I have found!

Very cool! I have a big box of pants pockets I cut off to make a quilt but a rug from them would be just as neat!

What a cute little rug. It has very clean quilting lines, something I always have trouble with. Your photography is very nice too. It looks like something out of a quilting magazine. Smiley

That looks really great! It looks easier than a braided rug (one of my long list of 'some day' projects.)

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

My thoughts exactly!  I have tried braided rugs, toothbrush rugs and crochet rugs, and none of them have worked out very well.  But this looks like something that I could do!!

Thanks so much for the great idea and great pictures.  I may just do this today!
