OK lets get to business on making a rag ball and talk about fabric some other day.
My husband hands me his jeans and says "Here you can put this in a rug." So I gut them. As you can see in the pic below that the beside the pocket of the jeans is ripped. So they will be recycled into a rug instead of going to your local landfill. I always think oh all the clothes that get thrown away and fill the landfill up. I could just make into rugs.
|Cutting the seams out|
|This goes to the landfill|
|This is some denim strips|
Next step is Sew all those strips. I usually have a 20 gallon plastic container full of denim.
There is allot of different ways to sew your strips. I will show the the other way I sew blankets later. I sew those differnt then this way.
Lay two strips out like this.
Over lap them about 1 1/2"
