I was in the mood for using up some jeans, and to do something cute.

Those are adorable! WHy we waste money in the fabric stores, I don't know. There is so much you can do with recycled clothing, linens, etc.

And here's what I've been working on:

An insane mix of appliqué, fusing, gluing, stencilling (all the lettering is stencilled), sewing, and blood! And the occasional technical expression when the pins jabbed me! It's for the St George's Day parade tomorrow. Unfortunately, due to injury (Achilles tendon strain), James may not be there to help carry it.
Makes a nice change from wedding frockery! :D

It wouldn't let me in!!! Very sternly told me "You do not have permission to view this!!!!!!!!!"
How's about putting it on your site, pretty please?????
BTW, where are they parading? DH will, at the drop of a hat, tell you about the year he took his troop "national" and led them in a march through Windsor Great Park. Got pix to prove it, too.

Oh! :( How sniffy of it! It may be because it's on a forum gallery...
I will. I got permission today.

The banner is going to the Kanderjam - at Kandersteg in Switzerland! - with James and the troop in July. Here: >

Very cute! But I suspect a sod to wash and dry as often as a bib probably needs to be.

Nope. They're made to be used. All the applique edges are treated with Fray Check and the stitching is machine. I raised three children who wore homemade bibs that were washed a'plenty. The denim is from the side of a leg of a pair of jeans, so it's not going anywhere. I think it'll last until whoever uses is wants to use it.

Thank you Donna, I will have a go but not straight away. I have to finish flowered items for my big Marche aux Fleurs this weekend. I am nearly done 2 dresses and 3 small bags to go. It's making me feel very springlike using lots of flower motifs and flowered fabrics and the weather is lovely and springlike at the moment too. I hope it holds for the weekend.

I didn't mean in terms of not being washable, I meant in terms of being quick drying. My only beef with demin is that it takes my jeans too long to dry. I looooove denim but it is a pain for drying even on the hottest day.
