I have a growing stack of worn out boy’s blue jeans just waiting to be repurposed. I’ve seen quite a variety of different fabric flowers over the last couple of months, so that got me thinking. What a great way to use up some of these old blue jeans!
While I did want some to be classic denim blue, I also wanted to add some fun splashes of color. So I picked up several different colors of Rit and dyed some jeans with yellow, orange, pink, purple, green, and red.
I really didn’t have any sort of pattern in mind, I just kind of winged it and made a bunch of different designs. I combined denim with different fabrics, and even threw in some burlap here and there. For a little more fun, I used the netted plastic from onion and shallot bags I had been saving.
I also spray painted some wooden dowels black to use as stems. I think I’ll make some more and frame them for the wall redo I am working on.
Is this overkill on the pictures?? I was having a hard time with glare.
So if I didn’t already give you way too may pictures to look at, here’s an individual shot of each one.
These were all made with my trusty glue gun. I’m not much of a seamstress. Not that I couldn’t be, just that I don’t have time for another hobby. :( I wish I did! I’d be making all sorts of stuff. :)
I’m participating in the following craft carnivals. To see some other awesome projects, be sure to visit them!
