Old Jeans Never Die. They Turn Into Quilts!

Old Jeans Never Die. They Turn Into Quilts! | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

If you have a ripped pair of jeans, or a old pair that has more holes than trouser leg, why not turn them into something else.


I love this quilt. It’s made from old jeans and backed with flannel, so it’s pretty much the coziest quilt ever. And even though the overall design is rather simple, the hand stitching is my favorite part, and I’m pretty proud of how it turned out.

Calling this a “quilt” sounds too fancy for something so cozy, so I usually just refer to it as the “denim blanket.” Whatever you call it, I put it to the test last night when we went on a hay ride in 35-degree weather, and I’m pleased to say that I was nice and toasty!

Being the thrifty pack rat type I’ve been stashing away these old jeans for years, with the intent of using the denim someday.  Well, a few months ago, my husband was digging through the attic and found my box of old worn out jeans and suggested rather strongly that I use them or get rid of them.  He even offered to do it for me!  So it was time to get busy.
