Drop-Dead Denim: Flickr Group Goodies Two

The Drop-Dead Denim GIVEAWAY is happening HERE! Check it out!


September is all about remaking those old jeans! This is the second of two posts featuring YOUR recycled denim goodness from the Drop-Dead Denim Flickr Group. Revisit the first installment here, and feast your eyes on today's batch of jeanious.

So I ask you... just what does one do with all the leftover scraps from all those nifty denim projects? Well, I think Sherry of Sherry's Simple Blog has the foremost answer to that question. She has clothed her denim disco divas in scraps. Just look at these dolls! They are glorious, and they make me want to cut a rug over here.

Caroline of Artfully Caroline rescued a pair of light jeans and transformed them into this sweet be-frilled denim apron. Thanks to her, the embroidered pockets that once languished in the backseat, now get to shine up in the front. Her apron is adorable and I bet it'll be helping out in the kitchen for a long time.


Until Wednesday Calls' Melissa is a talented maker who loves her denim. Her "little skirt that could" below is unmistakeable evidence of that. To create it, she married a favourite pair of jeans with a vintage sheet. It makes me joyful, this skirt. Such a charming transformation!

What I love about the following Soft Book by Mary of Handmade By Emmens is that the book will only improve with age, as Mary states. As it is loved by baby and thrown in the wash for cleaning, the book will soften and become a beloved family heirloom. What a great gift!

I am declaring my love for this Super Extra Large Bean Bag by Lumusan this very second. I love you Bean Bag. You have got it going on! You are big. You are beautiful. You are a gorgeous muted patchwork of old jeans. And by Jove, you look cozy, don't you? If I could somehow have you magically materialize under my posterior right now, I would do it I would.


Thank you to all who've uploaded projects to the Drop-Dead Denim Flickr Group. I so enjoyed having you participate in this way. We will definitely be doing this sort of audience participation thing again sometime. Too much fun!
