A little recycling.

Sorry I have been absent for so long, sciatica stinks!  Man, never felt anything like that and never want to again.  Three weeks in pain sucks.  But I am about 85% back so needed to work on a project.  I still don't have my sewing machine back from the shop, long story.  But my Mom let me have one a friend gave her.  Just a straight stiticher, but that will do.

So I have had this project pinned to Pinterest for a while.  I have been saving old jeans to make a quilt, but I want to do something now.  Here is the link: A Girl and a Glue Gun.

Sorry I really didn't take many pics, but Kimbo makes it real easy.  I just cut up a pair of old jeans, one leg will do, then cut out a pocket from another pair, it was cuter!  Then cut strips of a remnant I already had and went to work!

Sorry I didn't feel like modeling.  I think it came out OK though.  Not too bad for a first one on a machine I am not familiar with.  Here is the pocket detail:
I may just have to make another one!  Although the machine is not liking sewing through denim.  Hopefully will get mine back soon.
