Well here we are again, hopping around the internet. Don’t you just love all the great projects in this hop? I love the creativity, style and talent of everyone here. I went to Sweden today and I don’t even have a passport – I love the internet.
For my project, I was feeling a little nostalgic for high school. In the 70′s when I was in high school, the way you were a rebel was to ‘mark’ things. Especially your jeans. 1 – it annoyed the teachers, 2 – it was cool to your friends (who was wearing more ink) and 3 – pretty much drove your mom crazy!!!!!
So, a month ago I made a couple of wine totes and I had thought about making one of out denim to see how it would work out. So I started looking around for some denim and being cheap I saw the pile of blue jeans in the closet (long story short, I want to make a blue jean quilt out of my and my husbands old jeans as a keepsake for my son, or a cabin if we ever get one of those. Already have the kid…) and the wheels started turning.
I found a pair of my sons old jeans – wide legs that they wore in the 90′s and I started cutting. Then I grabbed some red fleece (like I would put any other color on the inside – really! – actually, I just couldn’t find any red flannel) and cut that to size. Then came the fun part – out came the sharpies. I had a great time doodling on this tote!!!! Brought back many, many memories of walking around with pen all over your hands because you touched the drawing before it dried – because it took days and days for it to dry if it ever did.
So here are my words for you to enjoy:
And for your Rock ‘n Rollers:
I hope you have as much fun hopping around the web as I had making this ‘wine’ tote!
Happy New Year to everyone!
