I was inspired by clothes ads. Many times we thumb thru' catalogs and order clothes. Then they come in the mail and they don't fit us correctly. They just hang in our closets. Since this has happened to just about everyone I know, I decided we could all relate!
I was inspired to create a quilt from an unusable clothing item --- a denim shirt that didn't fit me!
#1 Cut the shirt ---- Up Cycle this Denim Shirt
#2 The Process --- My Vacation Project Continues...
#3 The Binding --- A Fringie Raw Edge Binding
#4 Hot Pads --- Made from the Scraps
#5 Completed Project --- This Post.
And Wordless Wednesday - Veggies on my Quilt
Would love to have you share your thoughts and ideas on recycling projects or Up cycling projects... creative recycling!
