Denim Jacket

Now don't you love denim jackets? They are so versatile you can dress one up or dress it down. There is a funny thing about denim, it is so durable and classic. It doesn't matter how long you have had that jacket, it might have been your mother's or your grandmother's jacket, it doesn't matter because the older it gets and the more you wash it, the more you love it. I have two jackets now that I have had for a long time, I have put them in the box to go to the Salvation Army so many times but everytime I get ready to go to the SA with the box, I try the jacket on one more time. Then it ends up back in my closet and I wear it for another season.
The jacket in this post is a jacket I made for a special customer (all my customers are special) she wanted me to do something special on the back of the jacket. I was happy with the results. What do you think? I also highlighted the front and collar of the jacket with mudcloth and used some very creative free-motion quilting stitches to finish it off. The diva on the back is embellished with rhinestones and shells. I know that my customer is going to love the attention she will get when she wears this jacket. You will have to enjoy looking at it on this post because it is definitely a one of a kind.
And of course it carries the PJBSW Seal of approval.

My handsome husband is my best model for the men's wear designs that I create. I love to make men's shirts and making them out of unique fabrics is a must. Get ready for some of my newer men's shirts designs coming soon. Right now go over to my Bobby Joe S40 Designs Shop and check out the beautiful and unique designs for men.

I know that I have been neglecting my blog lately but I just did not have anything to write about. But then I signed into my entrecard account today and it cost 16 ec to advertise with me. I thought "wow I had better get busy" So if you are reading this post you might as well get over to your account and sign up to advertise while it is cheap.

I did want to share that last month I made 2 queen sized t shirt quilts and a full sized t shirt throw with the left over t shirts. Now I know that you remember one of my other posts where I talked about making a quilt for a customer that brought over 67 t shirts. I ended up making her the two quilts using the fronts and some of the backs of the t shirts but since I had all those backs leftover I did not want them to go to waste so I sewed them altogether and made a throw, I didnot put backing or batting so that is why I called it a throw but guess what I forgot to photograph the throw. But here is the quilt. And now you know that I was not just sitting here playing free-cell all day. Ha Ha just told on myself.
