DIY ideas for recycled denim – for the strings …

Hello Guys,

I still have too much recycled denim, and as I never trash any fabric, I have a lot of small scraps and strings as well… So, here are an inspirational board for the strings!

– So, one of my favorite is the braid… you can use it as a hairband, or as a belt… it’s simply cool, and easy to make (http://www.instructables.com/id/Braiding-eight-cords-into-a-flat-braid/step16/Just-end-it-all/):

Crazy quilting – work in progress

First of all, I have got a lot of ideas in Pinterest, and I have started to look after some stitches. Here are some pages:

I am here now with my current project:

Crazy Quilts · Embroidery · Etsy · felt · gifts · jewelries

I was lazy, but still…

I have finished some of my works, and have some working process… let’s see, what’s happened in the last few days here.

(starting with that we had a lot of visitors in the last 2 days, so that’s why I did not have time to write, but I hope, I’ll have more free time tomorrow :)).

So, about the felt productions, here is my beloved pink-grey felt heart:

I really like it, so there will be more in this colors. “Unfortunately”, the creative-shop’s (where I bought almost all of my stuff for these jewelries) owner liked it so much, so it became a gift 🙂 –> the good thing is, I have bought a lot of new stuff, so there will be some new items here, and in my shop soon.

I have uploaded some of my old works to my Etsy shop, you can check them there. 🙂

and in the meantime, I have started to create my sewing case. I always wanted to try crazy quilting, so I have used some jeans parts, sewed them together, then started to make some embroidery there… here is, where I am now:

Aaaaand… I was asked by Stichscience to answer some questions in Liebster Award, so I have a plenty of work tomorrow.. 🙂
