A new contest has arrived at Needleworkmonday!

Bienvenidos a mi blog (41).png

The Jeans

Who could have imagined that the pants that were originally made for men and more specifically for the miners in the gold mines popular in the 1870s, would become an indispensable item of clothing in the closet of anyone in this century.

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!

As you may have already noticed, Jeans is the protagonist of this new contest in our community. The idea came up thanks to the creativity of the users themselves who have presented us with many projects made with recycled jeans. Now it's time to invite the whole community to Needlework Your 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.

Yes massacre - ahem - recycle your husband#s jeans (best tell him the jeans had a special kind of moth and you only rescued his other clothes from getting infected with the insects 😁)


Saludos amigos aquí dejo mi participación 😃 soy nueva por esta maravillosa comunidad, si me equivoqué en alguna etiqueta agradecería me corrijan.
Muchas gracias!!

Oh @kattycrochet you want me to buy a new sewing machine 🤣 ???
I am joking :-DD I only once tried to sew jeans with my sewing machine and it stopped working. The fabric was sturdier than the machine... Not sure if I will find a way to participate, but I looove the idea as recycling jeans is so important as the production process of jeans fabric produces so much waste. Better to use it as long as possible. <3 <3

It was not my intention, but I understand perfectly what you are talking about, my mom does not like to sew Jeans in her sewing machine because of that.

This sounds so good ♥️. I'll see what comes to mind, I'm going to invent something hahaha. Good idea 😉💕.

Lovely contest I will make sure to work on something 🙂
