This Thursday, it’s all about…

being ‘Thrown a Curve’! So we can use curves, circles, ovals, squiggles or choose to interpret the theme in our own way. I threw myself a curve with this Arty-Farty Jeans Bag #2… I wanted a stylish, unusual jeans bag and I came up with the idea of using the leg of DD’s jeans for the body of the bag. Of course, it tapered outwards at the top and the bottom was narrower, but I thought it was really funky. I guess I look at things rather differently to most people, but then it wouldn’t be one of my bags if I didn’t!

It was quite complex to put together, so I had it all cut out and in pieces for a couple of weeks till I could get my brain organised and plan it’s execution, as it were. For some reason, this is how I work, or think, with fabric! Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the finished article, complete with blue waxed label!!

The base of the bag is circular – I used a CD for the idea – and it’s vinyl. That was quite fun to stitch… Here’s a closer view of the panel. I do love that image, don’t I? I just think she’s so diva/romantic/’come-hither’… divinely feminine! I find her expression very appealing.

The 2 art quotes are from MaVinci’s Reliquary – thanks Robin! The fabric panel is part of the Textile Pack I bought at the Scrapstore – all recycled, and I used a blue belt for the strap. The holes were fun to thread fibres through!!
