I have used all sorts of denim pieces in this jacket, in the CQ style, utilizing some pockets and labels too. I’ve made a number of these jackets and find they’re a great way to use up denim! I’ve also attempted knitting with denim strips too, which isn’t something I would highly recommend. I liked the end result, but my hands didn’t!

I love this idea. I also admire crazy quilting, especially the traditional style using rich fabrics, embroidery, beads, lace and other gorgeous things for trim and extra embellishments.
