As the temperature warms up and summer looms on the horizon, it’s time to put away those thicker fabrics. Before you pack away your jeans, consider creating something new from your worn-out denim. You can use two hems from an old pair of jeans to create stylish coasters for any decor. This Pinterest-inspired craft is easy and affordable for anyone wanting to do it themselves.
What You Need:
1. Two inside hems from an old pair of jeans
2. Needle and thread
3. Fabric glue
What To Do:
Use a sharp pair of scissors to cut the seams from the length of the jeans. Be sure to trim as close to the seam as possible.
Sew together the two seams.
Apply the fabric glue along the inside strip and tightly roll up the long hem. For the best result, add more glue to the end and let it dry for several hours on a flat surface.
Now you’re ready to enjoy a hot tea or ice cold lemonade in style. Remember to use as many hems as desired to make your coaster as large or little as you like.
