Hi Everyone! Its Friday again and Frosted Designs has another great Fabulous Friday challenge. This time its "BBQ/Picnic/Outdoor Games". I had some favorite photos of some of our outdoor adventures so I decided to use them to make a mini album. You may remember about a month ago when I said I had a great blue jean project to share with you. Well, this is the time! :) I have to say I'm really proud of this project and will be making others like it.
I have been saving jean pockets from my boy's outgrown jeans for quite some time. I just love them and knew that some day I'd have just the perfect project for them. Well, that day is now! I started by glueing two pockets (from the same pair) together with fabric glue. I used different sizes of pockets for this project. Next I punched a hole in them with my Crop-a-dile for my rings to hold it together. I looked through my chipboard stickers and found a few random sheets that I decided to use for this project. I glued them on with fabric glue so they wouldn't be falling off as its handled.
Each pocket holds a photo of an outdoor activity. I have journaled on the back of each one about where it was, what we were doing, or why I love it. If my boys were younger and looking at it, I would figure out a way that they could stay attached to the pocket and not get lost. My boys are old enough to know to put it back after looking so all the pictures just slip in and out.
Here are all of the pictures I used for this album.
And some details...
I really liked that some of the pockets had embroidered parts from the jean company or a tag on them. I wanted to make sure that part still showed. I also used a loop from a pair of carpenter jeans for an added detail.
I hope you'll play along with us at Frosted Designs this week. I can't wait to see what you make. Now...off to find some jeans that are wearing out! I have some pockets to cut off. :)
