IN THE MEANTIME......
I HAVE TO CHOP UP ALL OF THESE!
It's hard to believe there are so many variations in black denim. I also tend to get even more colour variations by using them inside out. That way each pair of jeans will yield two different shades of black, and often different textures too.
When I am shopping for used denim of course I look at the condition of the jeans - I don't use ones that are threadbare, but a few rips and tears are easy to cut around. I also look for design elements, such as interesting pockets, studding, etc. Sometimes they have flowers already worked into the jeans - those are definitely a bonus. I save (and use) the labels too because they also add to the design on the jackets. Labels from all types of clothing (not just jeans) come in handy. Someday, when I get enough of a stash, I hope to create a purse.
Now I'm heading back to demolishing jeans!
have an enjoyable day hacking, i hope you've got a sharp pair of scissors...k.ReplyDelete
Go for it MA!!! Take out all your frustrations......ReplyDelete
Oh, I am SO into this. I save every single pair of jeans EVERYONE in the house grows out of. I even have a few pair from when my 36 year old daughter outgrew them back in 1980. You know, cute pockets or embroidery. I have to see if I can find a jacket you did somewhere back in your posts!!ReplyDelete
Ok, I went back to look. I remember seeing it before. Now I am wondering how HEAVY it is? Cool Jacket.ReplyDelete
