A friend of mine has the cutest little denim cap. I decided to try and copy it. So, in order to get some already faded denim, I went to the thrift store and purchased (on half-off day) the largest pair of jeans I could find on the rack for a mere two dollars.
I made the cap! Mine is slightly different, in that the band on hers was pieced from more than one strip of fabric and I decided to keep it simple the on my first try. The back of it sports a little denim bow, and the front is very plain, no brim. It has gentle elastic going through the front band which stretches out flat when worn.
It's a teensy bit more snug than I wanted it to be. Oh, well. Looks really cute on my youngest daughter, though!
Additionally, I made another book cover. This one is for my very first Morning Coffee blog giveaway!
So, if you would like a book cover made to fit the Jordanville prayer book, in plain denim with pink and purple dots on the inside lining fabric, drop me a line in the comments box, with your e-mail. All comments are moderated, so I won't post it if you ask me not to. If you do decide to participate, it would be nice if you dropped a separate comment without your e-mail that I could publish, as well. I will draw the winner's name next Monday, June 2, 2008.
US and Canada only, please. I don't want to ship anything to India. Sorry.
For all you non-Jordanville prayer book owners out there: It's a good prayer book. I recommend it highly.
Or, you can wait, and I'll do another blog give-away, soon. ;-)
Just to be clear, the hat is not part of the deal. We are hanging on to that.
Oh, and I thought I'd mention: Both these little projects were done with ONE LEG of that very large pair of jeans.
