Time for another forum challenge! On your marks, get set....go!

Last summer, Ros suggested we had a challenge to repurpose recycled denim. I really like this idea, I have a big bag of old jeans here, and they are very cheap to pick up in a charity shop.

Our challenge to you is for as many people to make a small item from old denim fabric, in the next three weeks. Your item should be complete by midnight 23rd February, and you will need to email a photograph of it to me, finished or not, to katy.purvis@myhobbystore.com, by that time. We will then have a vote, and the favourite item will win a small prize.

Please do not put any pictures up of your denim delight in progress! We only want a photo of the finished OR NOT article by 23rd February. You can make whatever you like, and it is yours to keep or give away as you wish. QG Region 13 is running a gift tombola this year at FOQ, so if you need motivation and a purpose for your denim delight, I''m sure they would love some donations.
 
Any questions, just ask!

Oh dear Katy, I used all my recycled denim fabric just before Xmas and made some bags. The photos are in my albums already.

Sorry, I haven't got the time or any old jeans to recycle at present. Until I started again last summer, I haven't generally worn trousers for well over 10 years. The jeans that I have got are ancient and worn for gardening or working parties on the canal. Wouldn't want to reuse them for anything other than cleaning rags!
 
Good luck to all those who enter.

oooh, I'm tempted to join in too. I don't have any old jeans (actually need to buy myself a 2nd pair) but will check what's in the charity shops in town this afternoon...
