Blue Jeans



In the Winter 2011 Somerset Studio Gallery Issue, Pages 36-39, by Lori Lundy, is the inspiration for these jean pocket wall hangings.  I totally fell in love with the ones she shared in the magazine and had to make some as gifts for Christmas.  The first picture here is the first one I made and sent over seas to a terrific online friend.  Then I made a few more, tweaking the design (which for the most part came from a sample in the magazine) a little.  I love these and will be making more with lots of themes... I'm already thinking of some love, Valentine themed ones.  Lori Lundy has an Etsy store HERE with wonderful pieces of art (yes, I've already purchased one thing from her that I fell in love with).


                            



You will notice that the pictures below have no red "berries" (alcohol ink on pearls) by the bow... I took the pics and then realized I had forgot to glue them on.

These are so pretty! I can see you hanging them on a wall and then peeking tags out of them.

I am the proud recipient overseas and the pocket is so pretty! I have it on my wall still, even though I have taken down all the other christmas decorations. Thank you so much! A real treasure.

These are so cute... and I have a ton of Rick's old jeans that I've clipped the pockets off over the years. (I knew I'd want them for crafts!) I might use this idea for a Valentine craft for the girls at church.
