Making paper from jeans 

To make pulp from jeans first I needed to cut the jeans 100% cotton into small 1/2 inch squares soak them in water overnight. Next the jean pieces are mixed in the beater for about an hour to turn the fabric into pulp. This photo is taken half way through the process.

 

 

This is a photo of a piece of paper I made with jean pulp mixed with abaca.
