Double Denim Days

Have you noticed? It's back. Double denim, denim patchwork, combined faded and dark denim  - a denim dream. Let's face it. It can be awful. But somehow also rather wonderful!

Here's my little take on it in the form of recycled denim coil pots for the school fete.

(Just in case you didn't know, I'm making things for the up coming school fete  for the Environment Stall. We are recycling everything and anything we can get our hands on. It's been experimental, at times frustrating, often fun and even therapeutic - you know,  all things that crafting can be.)

There is something about the gentle faded blues, the cotton string and the coiling form that I'm finding really pleasing. 

And I'm even wearing the perfect 70's maxi frock to compliment my denim work...
 - fake patchwork with FAKE DENIM PATCHES!!! Ah...the Seventies. Does it get  much better than that?

For more double denim inspiration, I'm including here some vintage denim delights!
If it's good enough for Johnny Cash....

Dolly Parton....
and Debbie Harry....
Then it's good enough for me.


  1. Double denim dare me!
    Fake denim is a dream, especially on your patchwork dress. Too bad I can't watch you at your denim potter's wheel. Is there a prize for best goodies at the school fete?
    And Johnny Cash stole my heart.

    1. I do double denim dare you and then raise you one. We should! Some other crafty parents have made brilliant things for the fete - even multi-denim patchwork cushion covers. Compared to them I'm just a craft hack! But I'm having fun. I love Johnny Cash too.
