I learned how to make the coolest rugs from a classmate at our 20th high school reunion. The rugs are made using a toothbrush needle (I'm going to keep you guessing on this) and blue jeans! They are very durable (I have one that's over 15 years old at my front door and it's now starting to come apart) and heavy. I have 3 in stock right now.
I've probably made 30 of these. Each rug takes about 20 pair of jeans as only the backs of the legs are good enough to use. The knees on the fronts usually are just too worn to hold up under use, much less making. I sell these for $60 plus shipping, insurance, and delivery confirmation. In case you need a great Christmas gift contact me! I'll even include a gift card.
