Denim beginnings

These are the beginnings of another denim creation. I think I will be adding some felt flowers and some hand stitching to this one. The wonky-looking 'things' lying on top are meant to be pockets, but they are going to change to something more useful before I sew them down. The pattern is a tutorial from Handmade by Alissa and Sew,Mama,Sew - the Quilted Garden Tote. Of course theirs was done using cottons, but I just HAVE to use denim!!

I found a couple of interesting sites today and thought I would share #1 is http://boggleboy.deviantart.com/gallery/ where you will see a huge number of very kewl dolls. Well worth having a gander around.
#2 http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/field-trips-in-fiber/color has a series of colour studies on her blog (look for the 'colour' title in the sidebar).
