I shouldna done it, but I've signed up for a new embroidery challenge.
Sharon has posted this challenge on her blog. Being an inveterate denim embellisher since my teenage years I, like many others, couldn't resist the idea of trying to reclaim my lost youth by tarting up a pair of old jeans and turning them into a bag.
Here are my jeans: this pair is about four years old, and I haven't worn them for the past two -- they're just too stiff and dark (I keep wearing my faded, stretchy bootleg pair instead). Say goodbye, because they're about to go under the scissors (after a short dip in bleach to fade them to a nicer colour).
I am thinking of indulging my ocean/sea fetish as I embellish them, and I will post developments as they come along.
So now I have to go... I can hear the Bead Studio opening its doors...
