Casual and Cute Blue-Jean Coasters

4 Materials
5 Minutes

These no-sew coasters are Free and Easy, and get lots of compliments. Kids could easily make sets of these to give as gifts. I have even sold these in craft fairs for charity.

Everyone has old jeans to discard or donate.

Start by cutting around the pocket with a border of 1/8 to 1/4 inch. No sewing, just raw edges.

Wash your pockets in the washer and dry 'em in the dryer. This will fray the edges.

See? Nicely frayed. You might need to trim longer strands after they are dry.

Cut a piece from the flat side of an empty milk jug to fit inside your pocket. I wash the cut-out's easier. But if this grosses you out, you could wash out your jug first, of course.

Slip the plastic into the pocket to make it water-proof, and you're done!

    No question. But an 8 yr old could follow your simple, easy instructions. I love this idea! Thanks for posting.

    You could embroider a simple little outline of a flower or design to lighten the denim and maybe match a color scheme.

      These would be super cute to use to hold your individual place setting for your silver ware and a napkin at an outdoor barbeque, too!

    Do you glue or sew the top end of the pocket so the plastic piece does not come out, sorry if I missed it.

    This is SOOOOO cute... What a wonderful idea for a pair of old jeans.. I also like the idea of color/embroidered theme. Way to cute... And for the Kiddies... They're little cast offs for they're little sippies.... You know they're going to want they're own coasters as well... I love this idea and the Ombre basket too if anyone saw that one. Love DYI stuff.
