Denim and Burlap
When I was a teen I used to make shoulder bags and purses out of old blue jeans. Are you old enough to remember doing that too? You could also find me sitting on my bedroom floor with a seam ripper and splitting my jean pant leg open at the seam, just so I could add more fabric for an even bigger bell bottom! I have been a fan of denim my whole life. Right now I personally own 5 different styles of jean shirts and tunics. I think there is something wonderful about finding the perfect pair of Levis (insert your favorite brand here). No matter how many times you wash them they seem to remember how to fit your body the same way every time you wear them. Why all this rambling about denim?
A recent trip to a local craft shop had my light bulb shining brightly, I found a whole section filled with denim! I thought, is denim the new burlap? I am not one to follow trends…but, I think if this is a trend I may have to hop on board the inspiration train. I decided if you can make it out of burlap you can surely make it out of denim. With that in mind I created a list of possible denim projects. I usually do a bit of research to see if my idea has already been shared. All images belong to their respective, blogs, shops etc.
This is the list of projects I came up with, they say great minds think alike ( wink)
