Drop-Dead Denim Flickr Group Love
Do you remember the Drop-Dead Denim Event of last September? At the time, I established a corresponding Flickr Group where people could upload their denim crafts, and to my surprise, the Drop-Dead Flickr Group lives on... Isn't that neat? I just love seeing what kind of jean-ious other people are creating and sharing, so I thought I'd take a moment to showcase some of the goodness that's been uploaded since September. Let's see what we got!
Oh yes... well, you've seen Sherry's stuff here before, but I just had to show off this notebook of hers as well. It's just as cute as a button and so well-designed. Sherry infuses such lightness and fun in her work. She writes about this sweet project over at Sherry's Simple Blog. Check it out!
On her blog, Green Issues, Agy details how she went about making this super-cute back pocket wristlet from her husband's jean pockets. Wouldn't it be fun to make one of these? I get excited just thinking about the embellishment possibilities. Think felt or french knots or freezer-paper stenciling... Joys! Thank you for sharing Agy.
Marcia paired old denim shirts and dresses with some plaid shorts to make this great tone-on-tone quilt which she then machine-quilted using a lovely ribbon and daisy pattern. The full step-by-step photo tutorial can be found on her blog, Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting Blog.
And finally... As I was writing this post and researching the various Flickr photos, I discovered the delicious blog of Monika (MonaW) the creator of this gorgeous creation below. I adore every inch of this bag: the stitched branches, the felt leaves, the denim strip of course... Her blog is called Sewing With Love and it is a treasure to behold. Monika also has a Dawanda shop where she sells her beautiful wares. Dangerous information which I advise you to use at your own risk...
So there you have it! Thank you so much for all your crafty contributions. I will continue to monitor The Group, so if you're ever inclined to re-craft your old jeans, upload those photos! And one day perhaps, you'll find yourself featured here...
Well you have a happy day!
