I was given a heavy red denim a couple of years ago and decided this was a great way to use it. I even had a package of grommets that I recently purchased that I could use. Just for the record, going through two layers of heavy denim is not fun.
The designs are darling and stitched out nicely.They took a while to stitch out but I have another machine so I could sew while this machine was working.
I recently read that it really isn’t possible to multitask…… Misplaced holes seem to bear that truth out. Let’s just say I found opportunities for new “design elements.”
Now doesn’t it look deliberate?
Even though this took a while, I would do it again as I think it is really cute. I would use lightweight denim that the pattern recommends. I would also use smaller grommets. I am not sure I like the ragged edges of the denim, but it sure makes it easy to put together.
I am considering making a purchase of lightweight denim so I can make another one.
What summer fun are you working on?
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
