Here is the flag side in all it's All-American glory.
Here is the rag-denim side.
I love the random pocket squares and the ruggedness of the fray.
I've washed it once to start the fraying process.
Every time I wash it it'll keep getting better too!
I can't believe how *soft* this blanket is! You know how you LOVE your favorite pair of jeans...totally broken in for you. This is how it feels to me. A whole blanket of soft denim. I love snuggling up with this quilt!
The best part about this whole project is that I didn't spend ANY money on it! It's made entirely of things I already had on hand. Gotta love FREE!
Oh, I did go through about 6 sewing machine needles though! (Thanks Amy) So if you plan on making a denim blanket be sure to stock up on needles first so you don't have to stop when you're REALLY close to being done to change needles 3 more times!
And I tried saving a couple needles too! They would bend a little and I caught it in time before it broke and bent it back straight with needle-nose pliers! It saved it for a few more rows before it couldn't handle it anymore and just snapped! Hee-hee!
