Flea Market Finds = one legged jean as = ART = balls = chain = waists = chenilled = art ...


In May last year I had one of my best Flea Market Finds ever ...
a pile of one legged denim jeans ...
(do you call them a jean?) ... here

that became part of my exhibiton ...

Tactile balls christened ...
"Theraputic" ...
no it's not a spelling error, creating them wasn't therapeutic either ...
the hem of each leg became a chain ...
"Are we there yet" ...
was all I kept thinking while I created ...
the waist bands became wall art ...
"Waisted Waste"
and from the earlier days of recycled denim ...
"Chenille" emerged!  
Those one legged jeans still have oodles of creating left in them ...
pockets, flys, seams, hardware, tags ...
all still un touched ...
not for long!

Do yourself a favour ...

So lovely to wander through your creativity old and new - yes, there are some pieces there that I still remember - beautifully brought together - well done!

You could make strips from the denim and crochet rugs?? Lots of possibilities there!

One legged jeans? One wonders what happened to the other leg? I love what you have created with these beautiful shades of denim.

These seem to be begging to be made into boro! It's good soulful sewing & well worth an image search. I like your work ; )
