MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Creating...sort of

I have been looking forward to playing with the rolls of metal I showed you a few days ago, so this is the beginning (I think) of what I have in mind. This isn't metal - it's denim, but it will be the substrate.

This first picture shows the first layer of denim I cut and laid out on my worktable. This is the final piece after I wove more denim strips into it and stitched it with metallic thread to hold it down. Now I will start adding metal and other doo-dads to it. Ultimately I plan to use it to cover a coffee tin which will hold some of my knitting needles.
One of these days I will find time to figure out how to crop pictures in this program!
