Opposites Attract - Denim & Lace - FleurI had so many ideas for "Opposites Attract" but kept coming back to the idea of using two opposite fabrics. Hard, tough, thick denim and soft, delicate, fancy lace.
Then I had so many options of how to use these two fabrics and the words to a song "Denim & lace, rich or poor or come what may, I'm goin' to have you anyway, wearing denim and lace...." all buzzing around in my head.
For denim I used some jeans cut offs that were left over from shortening someone's jeans.
For lace I used a panel of curtain lace picked up at the local Salvo shop and the edge lace was a piece from my tin of lace.
