Tuesday Tip ~ My Denim Creation

Deconstructing jeans for the denim is always fun. You must start with sharp scissors. The brand I use is KAI 7300 from Japan. They are made of high-carbon stainless steel.

I use a mix of old and new denim in my quilts and other creations.

Here is a tip: when creating with repurposed denim, use different colored denim and see what kinds of patterns you can come up with. I had so much fun working with contrasting black denim and blue denim. I used pale purple embroidery threads for the hand stitching.
