Blue Jean Journal

I am taking an online journal class with Sue B. (By the way this class has been great.) You can check some of the journals that have been produced by the class at:

I dug into my hubby's closet and pulled out a pair of jeans that were un-wearable in public...and begged for them. I cut them up and looked for areas that didn't have holes. I decided that I would make a journal cover for my Friday Challenge.

I was able to use both back pockets and the button.

After making the journal I was fixing to trim off all of the frayed threads...but then I decided that they added to the over all design. I did add a few choice phrases to dress the journal up a little.

Best of all I still have a few hunks of jean fabric to use in another project.

I absolutely adore this journal Ann! You did a terrific job, and your choice of phrases is hilarious. Good job!

Betty Donahue said...

Neat -- I love your sayings.

Linda Cline said...

I laughed out load at some of those great one-liners.

You are right not to trim the threads. They add character.

Ann, you are such a sport on these challenges!! This is great, fun to boot!!

I love journals! Yours is very personal and very inviting. I like the blue jean pockets...just perfect for stashing a note. You have a great sense of humour.
