Have you thought about recycling things in your quilting.
Bonnie Hunter does a lot with cotton shirts, and The QuiltShow.com with Alex Anderson and Ricky Timsposted that they love to
recycle. This inspired me to post about
my use of recycled materials. I love
jeans and have used them for a few projects. I have four boxes of jeans and
pieces of cut of jeans all from my two boys, my husband and myself.
The first denim project I made was a quilt.
The second was a denim purse made from a pair of my youngest son's jeans. I took a machine embroidery class and this was what I used to play on the machine with. Someday I will have one of those in my machine collection.
The third was my denim jacket lined with fleece. It is nice and warm and heavy.
I also made myself a skirt and still have several ideas floating around in my head on what else I can do with all the jeans I have collected. We shall see what I come up with next.
