Jean-ius Kitchen Crafts: Coasters
We've all got that one pair of deteriorated jeans that we can't bear to toss. Sure, you could donate them or give yourself a clothing makeover, but since denim is such a strong fabric, why not put those pants to work? This week, we'll show you how to make four jean-ius kitchen accessories from one old outfit.
Craft #3: Denim Coaster
Nobody likes water stains on the coffee table. Save that surface and repurpose those old jeans at the same time with this easy-to-make coaster.
- fabric glue
- a pair of old jeans
- a needle and thread
Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut the inside seams from each leg of your pants. Make sure to get as close to the seam as possible for the most even coasters.
After you have cut the two seams out, sew them together to make one long seam.
Roll up that seam like you would roll up a sleeping bag. As you go, use a strong adhesive (make sure it is either fabric glue or all-purpose glue such as Liquid Fusion) to bond the coaster together.
