Here is one of my projects that was featured on Craftgawker a while back: Denim Sunburst Textile Art
The process of making the wall hanging is very simple, yet very time consuming. I simply cut old denim jeans into small rectangular pieces of all different sizes. Most of the strips were thinner than 1 inch. Then I began to sew then one by one onto a fabric backing. You can easily do a pre-layout design, or you can be like me and let the piece evolve on its own!
