And now for the jeans...
This little cutie has on some hippie style jeans - decorations on the side seam and lower edge, and a cute tied belt. I have some blue jean fabric that has flowers in the design and thought it would be perfect for those jeans. Here you see it with my first idea for a tied belt.
I love the fabric for these jeans, and the pink belt would have been cute, but I already knew the background color I was going to use was a brown, and I wanted something that would work with brown better. So I ended up using this blue fabric. This started as a white fabric that had brown embroidery in it. I used textile paints and made it blue. It's been in my stash for quite some time waiting for the right art quilt to come along.
I wanted the creases on the jeans to be visible, so I used a white Inktense pencil to make them stand out more.
Here's what it looks like all put together:
I'll talk about the background in my next posts. Thanks for visiting my blog!
