Wow, what a list Sharon! And thank you so much for including my things too. I really need a sewing machine cover for my second machine so I’ve downloaded the instructions for that, along with the ones for the blue jean journal. I can see a few Christmas presents coming from these. Thanks so much for spending the time to find all the wonderful ideas!
As I read thru this list I remembered a project I did with my grandaughter a while back and thought everyone might find it interesting. We also used this concept to make paper for altered book pages. http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_accessories_jewelry/article/0,,HGTV_3225_2740191,00.html
It is denim paper pins using denim to make pulp for handmade paper pins (jewelry) then they are attatched to a denim jacket.
Denim Paper that is a totally brilliant idea!!! thanks for the link-
Mary Anne I can see a Christmas gift list too – a recycled Christmas once more – most of my friends/family would agree witht the idea although I must admit to some friends who would not but in an era when we are all becoming aware of climate change recycling is becoming more fashionable
May be you could use a faux chenille technique for whatever you make. You would use much more of your denim than if you just use one layer. I hope to make a bag one day…
Sharon, you are just unbelievable – with all the information you have provided us in this post! Thank you again for writing your blog.
I can´t wait until July when your next class starts. I only regret it will be during school holidays. With children around there will be less time.
I just cleaned up my sewing room and packed up all the denim/jeans to give away….after seeing this list, I think they’re all going back to my room! I made a purse for my teenage daughter out of a pair of jeans for a 24 month old. (They were on sale for $5) You can see the picture on http://flickr.com/photos/linmoon/490098612/. I needed a quick gift – and she really liked it.
