Bravo, Eleanor. Your edges are excellent. I like the effect of muti-colors in the warp and varied denim in the warp. I have wanted to try denim. Thinking about making that tough fabric into yarn strips has me hesitating. Did you rip or cut your denim strips?
That's quite the roll of denim. :)
Do you use a Fraser cutter?
I like going into Marden's in Maine. Never know what you find and very cheap. I just bought 13 yards of fleece for $48. Using it for muslin to test pattern fit and lining of my shirt jacket. Local Walmart wants $23 for 1.5 yards of muslin. Rolling eyes.
I have a small bag of old denim that I have been hording for several years. But it looks like so much work to cut it into weft! I loved looking at the beautifully photographed project - and wow - tell us more about that roll of denim!
That roll off denim was a stack of three rolls. It made less than one 72" rug. I deconstructed more than 200 pairs of blue jeans using many seam rippers. I killed my Gingher shears, and many titanium Olfa cutter blades. It would have been impossible to use a fabric stripper because the leg sections varied greatly in length, width, and weight. The denim really chewed up my hands, too - Aquaphor was my friend for hand repair. I didn't add any weight to my beater, and I was packing it is as tightly as I could, beating the and for times at a time. I want to make more denim rugs, but when I do, I'll be buying the denim of the bolt.
