As I continue to work on my RSC Blue Blocks I was inspired to incorporate my daughters jeans that I had "saved" from their grade school days. The first pair belonged to our youngest. This is the bottom from her favorite Capri jeans she wore weekly until she outgrew them. (Who can blame her when they had these beautiful embellishments):
So how could I resist making a "wonky" girl for my RSC quilt out of these. Here she is:
I made the yoyo "flower" for the hat with the remainder of my scraps:
I also had in my stash, another pair of denim jeans from our oldest daughter.
Oh man, she loved these "rhinestone" jeans when she was young. She literally wore them out. (Evident by the big hole I found in the knee! )
Working with the denim against the cotton was "heavy". But with a little cutting, and resewing, I was able to create an adorable roof top for the "denim" girl's house.
I love that a little bit of each of our girl's childhood has been incorporated into these blocks. What a wonderful way to preserve memories. I guarantee each daughter will immediately recognize their jeans and be sent down a happy memory lane!
Here's how all my blues are coming together so far:
(I couldn't resist adding a "spot" of red to each.)
Happy Scrappy Saturday everyone!
I'm off to check out your progress.
