And finally ...
... at last I have pulled my finger out and become part of the MN arts and crafts blog! Hello everyone.
I know, it was AGES ago now, but Meridian challenged us to produce something recycled and blue. I had two denim pinafores and a denim skirt in a corner that dd2 had grown out of, and I had been wondering what to do with them for ages … here was the inspiration! I decided to make a patchwork bag, but when I cut out the squares I discovered I actually had enough for two bags (well, I did once dd2 presented me with a pair of jeans she had outgrown too!) I like the frayed look of denim so made the bags with the seams facing outwards. Before making the bag up I sewed round each square to ensure that it didn’t fray right back to the seams. Note I said "bag". I made dd1's bag first. Poor dd2 is still waiting (oops)
