Denim Patches

In pairs, we had a hexagon shape piece of denim each and we had 10 minutes to do anything to the piece of fabric. I cut out a floral shape from one of my Laura Ashley samples. Then started to stitch some thread around the edge. Using the colour cream, I wanted to keep the colour neutral up against the black. We then had to swap patches with the person next to us. We had to work on each others hexagon. The second image is what Izzy had done to complete my original piece. She frayed the edges of the floral fabric and cut out to under lay a turquoise sheer fabric. The end image is a gathering in a beehive shape of everyone’s upcycled denim piece. This was a quick and easy task which I found interesting to have the thought process of another creative mind and to show diverse interests in colours and patterns.
