I got the blues…

But in a good way! I have been working on what I refer to as “project denim” for a week or so, now. My DD has given me several pairs of her old jeans  – I love denim – and I decided that I would try to use ALL of one pair to see how many things I can create from them. So far I have a bag from the bum (see photo 1), a clutch bag from one of the lower legs, 2 headbands (newly embellished), 2 wrist-cuffs – blinged up! and a coiled fabric bowl. I am taking all these wondrous things to the Community Market at Halwill Junction tomorrow to see what the other crafty peoples make of them!!

Cute, innit? I made the strap too – using a piece of the other leg and some recycled fabric a friend gave me. Here’s one of the cuffs:

And I wrote a haiku for them – because it’s (Haiku my heart) Friday, isn’t it? 😉

Moody denim blue

Sparks my imagination

Love my baby’s jeans!

  1. They are the best sort of blues! 😉
    Re-cycling at it’s very best!
    Love the Haiku too although I’m not totally sure what one is 🙂

  2. Fun stuff ! There is just something so comforting about an old pair of jeans, isn’t there ?
    Love your ode to jeans haiku too !
    Have agreat weekend, Rosie !

  3. Well I’ve been throwing my old jeans away Rosie… but hey no more!! I never even think to recycle clothes (well except to steal buttons off everything…bit of an obsession lol) I think I need to make friends with my sewing machine again… it’s been a long time since it has seen daylight 😀
