Jeanius Refashioners 2016 Airplane

Jeanius Refashioners 2016 Airplane – The idea

Jeanius Refashioners 2016 Airplane started when the back pockets of the second discarded jeans were lying on the table. I had some difficulty to threw them away and also what was left of the jeans trying to make the most out of her well beloved jeans. These pockets had a lovely topstitch design. I was wondering if I could use them in a project. A while ago I came across this airplane and I immediately imaged that both pockets would be wonderful to use for the wings. This airplane doesn’t take a lot of fabric to make it. I copied the pattern and start playing with the leftover parts of the jeans to make the airplane.

Jeanius Urbanears Cover refashion – the story

Jeanius Urbanears Cover refashion is my second make for Refashioners 2016. I made the Jeanius Urbanears Cover refashion for our eldest daughter. When I started unpicking a jeans for the Jeanius refashion relaxing neck pillow our eldest daughter asked me if I could to do some alterations on one of her coats. I said I could but in return she had to do the unpicking of the jeans. She agreed and while I was fishing the Jeanius refashion relaxing neck pillow she saw what was left of the jeans. She asked me if I could make a cover for her just bought Urbanears out of it. I had also some long terry fabric on the table that came from a discarded hoodie. The same hoodie were I got the red ribbon from. She wanted the long terry fabric to be used for the inside.

Jeanius refashion relaxing neck pillow

This Jeanius refashion relaxing neck pillow is my contribution for refashioners 2016. This years theme was jeans only. The challenge was tough. Jeans aren’t easy to refashion. Jeans fabric has a kind of stiffness and there are heavy seams to deal with. I had three jeans I could use. At least that was what I thought. They were all women jeans. Surprise, surprise, surprise. Most women jeans nowadays do stretch. There was only one with no stretch. The other two had a different percentage of stretch. Making something to wear was impossible. After a good night sleep I decided to make something to use. Sleeping and relaxing a good way to combine with a useful pillow.

Discarded becomes wearable or Two make One

front 2 WOne of my FB-friends in one of my FB-groups send us a link to this Refashioners challenge. I really like making refashions. Sometimes I turn a dress shirt into a blouse, two T-shirt into a scarf, a pair of pants and T-shirt into a new T-shirt and scarf or a faded T-shirt into a new fresh T-shirt. My latest refashion was an oversized cardigan into a more fitted cardigan.

Een van mijn FB-vrienden stuurde onze een link naar deze Refashioners challenge. Ik vind het leuk om refashions te doen: een overhemd wordt blouse, 2 T-shirts een sjaal, een joggingbroek een T-shirt en sjaal en een verwassen T-shirt een fris nieuw T-shirt. Mijn laatste refashion was een groot vest in een passend vest.
