Today I made a bra for my mother....which I cannot share with you....because that just seems a little weird, but once that was done I completed a project that has been kicking around in the back of my head for years....literally.
Do you have projects like that?
This one began with an article in Martha Stewart Living magazine. Before the regular use of the internet I would clip articles out of magazines and file them...yes I know...file them under subject.
This article went into my home dec. file and was for making a rug using strips of denim from old jeans and was described like this :
"This fluffy rug, so welcoming to bare feet, is made from hundreds of strips of denim. The frayed edges in shades of blue, gray and white create subtle modulations in color"
Not being sure if I would like it enough to sew "hundreds" of denim strips to make an entire floor rug, I opted to try it out on a few floor mats for the back of our jeep.
My floor mats measure 18 x 20 and required 3 pant legs each.

Do you "file" projects or "pin" ?
Have you completed any stalled projects lately?
