Plenty of blues...

As I mentioned before, I've been collecting old jeans from friends and cutting them into 6 inch squares. I have now got more than enough for my planned picnic blanket. Here's what (some of) the squares look like laid out.

I think this should make it a good size, I figure I'll start sewing it together and then see how it looks.

Does anyone have any insight on good picnic blanket sizes?


  1. Such a good idea. Denim is good at hiding grubbiness! You'll have to reveal how many paris of jeans were sacrificed in the making when you're done.

  2. Great idea Rachel. For picnic rugs I say the bigger the better, there seems to always be one bum that can't fit on! :-D

  3. cool blanket Rachel - have you considered washing it though? Denim is heavy and will have your machine in a spin (hehehe) - maybe make two that join with velcro so you can easily wash one at a time? Or maybe just work out what will be not to heavy or bulky to lug around...
