Need a good use of worn out jeans? Try your hand at a rag quilt. I used the legs off some old jeans, cut to 7 inch square. Backside is 7 inch squares of flannel cut from 4 old pillow cases and a flannel nightgown.
Place the squares back to back or wrong sides together. Sew with 1/2 in seams. Just make sure all seams go to the same side. When it is the size you want, the fun begins. Cut the seam allowance at 1/4 to 1/2 in intervals so it will fray and be soft.
Before you wash this, hang it outside in the wind or brush the seams as there will be lots of little threads coming off the seams. I made the mistake of just washing mine and plugged the water pump.
