Today's showcased tutorial has everything - playing with dye to create fun effects, upcycling denim jeans and embellishing with a little hand stitching, all to create these adorable pencil cases. They'd be perfect for Valentines Day!
Vicky, from Vicky Myers Creations, shows how to make a Shibori Style Denim Hearts Pencil Case. The tutorial starts with various methods for dying the denim jeans fabric, then moves on to hand stitching the dyed fabric. To add the hearts, Vicky gives detailed instructions for reverse raw edge appliqué, as in the top pencil case. This one's my favourite! She then finishes off with directions for sewing the pencil case.
Vicky added her denim hearts pencil case to the Refashioning with Denim link party. You might like to check out the following links at the Refashioning with Denim linky...
