A new contest has arrived at Needleworkmonday!
Jeans is the name given to pants made of denim fabric. Also called "Vaqueros", this garment has evolved over time, from being a symbol of counterculture and rebellion of youth against the system in the 60s, to become an essential garment. Its versatility has allowed great designers to create their own brand, their own style and even their own culture around jeans.
Needleworĸ Yoυr Jeans!
A contest in which you can express all your creativity and ability to transform an old jeans into a great craft project.
Remember that you must involve needles of some kind in your creative process.
Don't have a pair of jeans you can use for this project? Don't worry you can use any fabric that looks like it such as Drill, Denim, Canvas or something similar.
Show us your creative process with some pictures, but we also want more than just a tutorial. Tell us what's behind the project: motivations, ideas, difficulties, anecdotes etc.
1.- Make your project with jeans fabric or something similar.
2.- All items you make with jeans must include a needle. We will also accept any form of fiber arts that has to do with knotting, braiding, felting, tying or any form of fabric and thread manipulation. You can even combine different sewing techniques together.
Objects for the kitchen such as pot holders, aprons, cup holders or glass holders, placemats or ornaments.
Whatever you can think of that can be made with jeans.
Here you have some examples:
