I’ve been hoarding collecting jeans for awhile and haven’t used them until now.
Yes, another journal cover - this is the last one for awhile. (Maybe) ☺️(sheepish grin)
The inside flaps are from the flannel shirt front
How cool is that!
Also made a collar for zu zu. I found the buckle on Etsy that can be personalized and used her old collar for a pattern. Here’s a tip the woman at the pet food store told me - dab some clear nail polish on the engraving and it won’t wear off.
I don’t wear nail polish but had some polycyclic which is just as good .
Have you made upcycled stuff? What do you make?
I keep wanting to do more of it but then my beautiful batiks call “use me! Use me! “
I had a little landscape but seemed rather “potholder like” so on a canvas it goes. Couldn’t find my glue gun so used this stuff I had in my hardware tool kit left from putting baseboards in my kitchen. Seems to work ok.
Of course not a perfect fit - need to put something on the bottom so it looks like I planned that empty space.
Printed words on paper and covered it with clear tape to protect. Don’t like the looks of the shells though
Darker and more shells? A little yarn? Better but still not right
More yarn and small driftwood pieces found on the beach. - yes! Simplicity found in solitude causes the serenity of a finished art quilt 😉
Did you know that Paul McCartney wasn’t writing about a bird? Here is part of an interview with him about the song
'I had in mind a black woman, rather than a bird. Those were the days of the civil rights movement, which all of us cared passionately about, so this was really a song from me to a black woman, experiencing these problems in the States: “Let me encourage you to keep trying, to keep your faith; there is hope.”
As is often the case with my things, a veiling took place, so rather than saying, “Black woman living in Little Rock” and be very specific, she became a bird, became symbolic, so you could apply it to your particular problem.'
