Blue Jeans Blanket

Blue Jeans Blanket - A FREE pattern from NeedleKnowledge

 Gather up all of your worn out or outgrown pairs of blue jeans and recycle them into a sturdy throw, perfect for picnics! This project works up quickly, and using ready-made, pre-packaged bias binding really cuts down on the time needed to make the throw.

This pattern was originally featured in the book Joy of Junk, and is just one of the many free patterns featured on the NeedleKnowledge® site. Visit the Free Patterns & Projects page for additional ideas that you can download and stitch.

Materials Needed:
  • 4-5 pairs of adult-sized jeans (if using child-sized jeans, each leg width needs to be a minimum of 7 inches.
  • Blue all-purpose sewing thread in blue and tan.
  • Five (5) yards tan extra wide double fold bias tape.
Directions:

Download the Blue Jeans Blanket PDF Pattern. Cut the leg off the pants 2 inches below the pockets. Open the side seam to lay the leg fabric flat. Cut 80 squares measuring 6.5 x 6.5 inches.

Stitch 8 of the squares together, to make a row, having the wrong sides together (the seams will be on the right side of the finished throw), using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Make 10 of these rows.

Stitch the 10 rows together, stitching them with their wrong sides facing.

To complete the throw, bind the edges of the blue jeans blanket with the double fold bias tape.
