I’ve been crafting again. This is the salvageable fabric from two otherwise dead pairs of jeans. The embroidery is inspired by Japanese boro and sashiko. Some of it draws directly from that tradition, but for this project I’ve been messing about with sealife and tentacles because I was making it for my son and thought he would like it (he did).
