Great Idea from Jan!
I teach my Linen Ladies Workshop to guilds all over the country and it's always such a treat when I receive a letter back from one of my students.
Jan Morin from Pine Grove, California, emailed me with pictures of one of her creations and I was blown away. I have seen a few jackets/garments made from old linens but never one to this level! I just had to share it with the rest of you!
Here is Jan's letter to me and thank you for sharing!!!!
"Here's my jacket/vest from old linens. The back was a VERY old curtain. The embroidery was on a soiled dresser scarf and the stains wouldn't come out. I cut out the embroidery and appliquéd it on the back of the curtain. The fronts are old linens that I quilted on fabric."
