I think I must have used 15 pairs of jeans for mine! All I used was jeans and thread! Grin I love my new blanket and I can use it for so many different things! It's great for a picnic too! And I'm thinking about making curtains to match cause I love it so much!







My project is pretty self explanatory - I just cut a ton of squares and then sewed them together and ironed in between so the seams in the back would be neat and flat because there is no backing or anything.. just bare edges so the ends fray! I love it!!

I hope you like!! I took the one with my hand in the picture so you could get an idea of how big the squares are. And I wanted to show off my wicked cool admission bracelet for the Dance Olympus convention yesterday in Boston!  Cool I am such a nerd. I was just looking at all the projects everyone has entered so far and there isnt a single one I don't like! We are all so very talented! It's extreme!

Peace  Kiss

Wow, that's a great blanket!
Would be perfect for a picknick too. And I love your idea of matching curtains.

Thanks so much!!  Grin I really like that organizer thing you made! You did a very nice job! It looks like I need to start wearing out some more jeans so I can make those curtains! It's going to look so cool!

I'm not a quilter either! This is the first time I do anything like this and it wasn't hard at all! If you want to make a quilt then this pattern would be the way to go if you want to keep your project simple.  Grin And if you have any questions feel free to ask!  Kiss

Awe thanks so much yu guys! Yes! Definately steal my idea! And take a picture and show me how it comes out! I'd say my blanket is about 6' x 5' for now, but when I can get my hands on some more worn out jeans I'm going to make it bigger! Thanks again for the nice comments! They really mean alot to me!  Kiss

That is a very cool idea! I have quite a few old pairs of jeans lying around, and people tend to give me their old clothing because they know I like to make things out of them. I may end up making myself a nice denim blanket for myself.

15?!  Geez.  That's pretty labor-intensive.  But it looks beautiful!  I saw something like this once, but it was on a much smaller scale, and it didn't look nearly as cool as yours does.  Awesome job!

             Grin     I was looking at your photo and wondering why in the world you would show a pic of your hospital bracelet!!!LOL  So happy to know that it was for something way cooler than a hospital visit!!!   I just love your blanket, I am in love with anything denim.  Show pics of your curtain when you make it!

Such a cool blanket. I love the slight difference in the colors, it almost looks painstakingly placed that way.

Yes, tacosandcake, <--- haha, I love yur name!!... it took me a long time to place each each square so it looked like that. But it wasn't too painful, it was actually kinda relaxing and fun!  Cool

Pretty and classic.  I like the idea of letting the blanket fray at the edges, just like the hems of favorite jeans inevitably end up doing...

Pieces,

Joanne
