***edit*** a few people asked what the silver things are in the picture, I am sorry I don't have the proper name for them. I picked them up at a craft store ages ago and they are meant to fold the fabric as you braid. I'm sure any fabric or craft store should have them.
Tutorial on making a blue jean braided rug!!
(this is my first tutorial so please bare with me)
Cut the legs of several pairs of jeans
Remove/cut away the seams
Cut 1 1/4" strips (or as wide as you would like)
Gather as many strips from different colors of jean
Start sewing a few strips together. Only sew a few strips together at one time or the braids will get tangled when braiding.. you can add to strips at you go.
After sewing a few strip together start braiding.
There you go... the start of my rug I'm still adding too it !!!
