I have decided to try to work on this quilt every couple of days. The prep work is quite labor intensive:
After cutting the jeans apart and separating the fronts of the legs from the backs, the circle needs to be traced – Here we are traced. Then:
They are cut out. Here are the backs with the sewing lines traced on them.
These are the fronts of the same pieces. I really like the contrast between different parts of the same pair of pants as well as different pants.
Scraps…any ideas what I can do with these??
More scraps. These are actually the hems and seams from the pants. I know may things can be made from the selvages of fabric – I wonder if these can be used the same way, or if they are too thick. In any case, I am enjoying (& getting a little bored) cutting these out, but I am itching to get sewing. First though, I need to cut out the fabric and batting to go in the middles. Hopefully I’ll get to that soon!
