When you craft, don’t you just hate to throw away even the tiniest scrap? I decided to use my considerable scrap pile of jeans to craft a jean seam wreath. Since the seams are harder and thicker than the fabric of the jeans, using them in sewing projects is next to impossible. A project using a hot glue gun was my easy answer.
I cut all the flat-fell seams and hems from my jean scraps. The flat-fell seams are usually the inseam of jeans. They are the easily identified seam that has two parallel top stitching lines. Be prepared to cut a lot of them.
A variation of this project can be achieved with fewer jeans or their scraps. Simply cut the denim in 1/2-inch-wide strips. Attach them in the same way as the seams and the hems.
