The Denim Project

A couple weeks ago, I went through my sons' closets. I cleared out all their jeans that had massive holes or were too small. My 9 year-old son had 8 pairs to donate to this project. EIGHT! I stuffed all these cast-offs into my denim bin and could hardly close the lid. I knew it was time to get to work. -- Denim Project

With my (good) sewing machine still at the Sewing Machine Hospital, I've been keeping busy with non-sewing machine projects. There are always tons of non sewing projects to work on. Or always a project I can do all the prep work for. However, suddenly all I can think of doing are projects that require a sewing machine! Why is it always like that?

I already have a large pile of 5" squares cut, which started to feel boring. So I decided I needed to find other ways to use up my stash.

After spending some time on pintrest, I've discovered many other denim projects. Here are some of my favorite denim quilts. -- Denim Project

It's okay to have lots of ideas...I obviously have a lot of denim to cut up. And with 3 active kids, I think I will always have a supply of old denim.
