Part 6: Finished / For the time being

I finished the rug, sort of. I left the end undone and not a tapered finish like I would have done normally. This is because as we wear out more jeans I can make the rug bigger. So, I think this will be a continuing rug for a few years but it will be able to be used while it is growing and in between growth spurts. Boy it sounds like a kid!
This took seven days from start to finish.
Dimensions 3 1/2 feet by 8 1/2 feet

Above links just talk about this project.  If you are interested in learning how to make this type of rug.  I have a series of tutorials on my blog just go here.


  1. That came out beautiful sunshine! You must work 22 hours a day to get all the things finished that you do!

  2. I can't believe it only took 7 days to get that done! Wow! It's fantastic!

  3. It is beautiful, Sunshine. You inspire me!

  4. It looks fantastic. I really like your story.

  5. Can you guess at how many pairs of jeans you used to get a rug this big?

  6. about 30 give or take a few. Some are kids and some are adult the adult ones of course give you more material to work with.

  7. Serendipity smiles... just last week I was looking at rug section in my monster bible of all crafts possible, and considered making a braided rug from thrift shop jeans. Your rug is just beautiful, so thrifty and practical. I'm starting my rug for sure!

  8. Found this from Whip Up. The rug is great! I don't have kids, but I'm inspired to collect some old jeans from my family & friends now.

  9. Excellent work! You've inspired me to try my hand at making one for myself. Great recycling as well:)

  10. Great use for repurposing jeans. The rug is awesome.

  11. Love the rug. I've been looking for something to do with all my old jeans.
