Recycling Jeans

My first project of 2012 is well underway.  It began when I was tidying out the cupboards and came accross some old faded outdated jeans.  There was no way I could wear them and they weren't worn out ....... so out came the scissors, the seams and pockets were removed and then I ripped them all up and turned them into this.

 just a bit more to do now.

This rug is available from HERE

Love it! Spookily enough I found a tutorial yesterday (when tidying!) that I had saved for making plaited rugs!! Is it easy to do? I've seen similar where you use a huge crochet hook but as I don't crochet I was thinking that braiding the fabric together would be easier :)

What a great rug, lovely for a teenage bedroom or anywhere else for that matter.
Mmm. The Charity shop might go short a bit this year. lol
