bluejean blossom

Last night I was doing laundry and came across an old pair of jeans that had holes in them. I remembered seeing a blog post about making denim flowers - so that is what I did!

Heather at Me Making Do inspired me to not throw away my jeans, 
but to rework them into something lovely!!

Her denim flower was super easy to recreate and it only took me 25min!

I cut out a petal shape from a piece of cardboard and then used it to make 3 single petals...

Then I folded the denim and cut out a bunch of these double petals...

By following Miss Heather's tutorial on her blog Me Making Do, I made this!!...

I love the way it turned out!
Thank you Heather for the inspiration!!!
