Crochet Jean Rag Rug

In the summer of the olympics 2012 I made a lot of new things, a jean rag rug was something that I had never made before. The idea came from a retro crochet book that my mum has  and from that I was inspired to turn my little brothers ripped jeans into something useful!

I started by cutting up the jeans so that they formed a long spiral instead of having to tie multiples of ends together!

I took a basic oval pattern from my mums retro book and started crocheting! The first time didn’t turn out so well, it was a bit bumpy and didn’t lie flat. So I had to restart it but I am happy I did because it turned out really well in the end.

My brothers dog stan loves to sit on anything that I make, so he happily posed for me !
