Further in my looking back series....some of you (most of you, probably) know that I have a 'thing' for working with recycled denim. These two jackets were ones that I made in 2006.
The rag style was a one-off and was done for a commission.
The jacket below was one over over 30 jackets I made in the crazy quilt style and using recycled denim, along with lace and recycled clothing labels.
Alas, the arthritis in my hands has meant that I have had to pretty much give up my work with denim. It was certainly fun while it lasted though.
Oh, and here's something you might find interesting... have a look HERE at Di van Niekerk's blog to find lots of free tutorials for silk ribbon embroidery.
