Crazy About Blue Jeans




I snagged a pair of my daughters worn out jeans. I loved the texture and the worn spots. I made a crazy quilt background and top stitched with jeans thread to tie it together. I then rubber stamped it and added perle cotton stitches. The yo yo's are made from Talbots tie fabric and held down with miscellanous buttons. I finished it off with some star beads. Size is about 17x22 and is bound in tie silk.

This is intense! I really like it. Who knew you could combine denim and silk?

What a great use of the pockets and hems. I too like the combination of the denim and silk-a good use of the bag of ties in my stash. Thanks for the inspiration.
