Denim & Lace
I decided I would like to make a quilt from recycled denim jeans. I went to the op shop and bought 4 pairs of jeans and a denim shirt and a blue & white check shirt with nice embroidered flowers on it (very ugly shirt,but I knew I could cut off the flowers) all for $12. They had all been freshly laundered and luckily for me it was a $2 day, so I didn't have to pay $5 or $6 each for them.
I cut up three pairs of jeans and the shirts. The other pair just happen to be JAG, and when I tried them on at home they fit me, so I will keep them!
By the time I had cut up the jeans, and cut off the pockets and zips for future projects I decided that I am not patient enough at the moment to make a quilt. I have started with a cushion cover and will see what else transpires.
Here it is:
more to come another day.......
