shades of blue

I get bored with the same thing over and over and over.

So I did something a little different.

I used 5 different pairs of jeans. 

Picked for their shade of blue.

Now I can answer when someone asks how many jeans it takes to make a rug.

This rug has 5 jeans in it, that I used fronts and backs of legs. 

It measured approximately 50 inches long. 

So an average pair of jeans is going to make about 10 inches of rug - of course it all depends on the size of jeans, too!

I saved another set of jeans for a second rug if I like it... I think I'm gonna do it again!


  1. I love this Blue Jean Rug !! Looks Beachy!!!

  2. I have a hard time believing that the strips I've cut are enough for a rug. That's the next one on my list, after this one. Five jeans? Crazy.
