Upcycling denim fabric from salvaged denim is one of my favorite recycling activities. I love all jeans new and old and the denim fabric is so amazing I just love seeing them all laid next to each other where you can really notice the textural diversity of the different denim fabrics. So when I found this Youtube video tutorial describing how to make a complete quilt out of recycled denim, I knew I had to get started on mine immediately. The material list is petty straightforward:
This quilt is so gorgeous and is about an intermediate skill level. Mine turned out fantastic and I know yours will too. I made one to use as a throw on my Hippy Boho Chic porch/ patio and it was the perfect weight and sturdiness for that area and looked great with all the plants and hanging macrame baskets I have out there. I have made on for my daughter’s dorm room as well and I really hope no one sees it… You know why I can’t make anymore.
