  1. I made something like this a few years ago, but it was shaggy. I cut out jean strips about 3 by 1 inches. Lay them three thick on a thin piece of canvas and sew them down the middle. Then lay another bunch and so on until you have a row. Fold over the bunches and sew another row right next to the first. The rug is very soft and catches dirt very well.
    Takes a lot of jeans.
