Bookcover
Finally, the bookcover I finished last week. The background fabric was a very faded pair of light blue jeans. I flicked blue & magenta acrylic paint over the fabric and then used it to try some fabric paint & stamping techniques. Then cut it up, reassembled the pieces, stitched them onto a backing fabric & stencilled the hearts on using shiva oil sticks with contact stencils. Lastly, added some free machine embroidery in gold.

Linda, this is just gorgeous!! The purples and golds are wonderful. Great use of a pair of tired, old jeans!!

You've got my attention with this one Linda.I have about 40 pairs of old jeans in my garage waiting for an idea for me to use them.
I aquired them legally also from my local op-shop.
