If you're a reader of this blog, you've seen my upcycled denim bracelets,
quilts, vases and mystery objects. (Click 'denim' in the word cloud on the lower right of this page for more). Here's one of the tinier things you can make from denim: Rings! Front:
They're so easy! Cut out a denim seam. Measure and fit to your fingers. Slather the cut ends as well as the edges with 'Fray Check' or some other fray-stopping substance (thinned glue works too).
Add embellishments to the middle. The question mark ring is simply stitched on - the question mark is a bead, and there's a button behind it. For the zipper pull ring, I stitched on a button and then glued the zipper pull in the center.
Once the fray-stopper is dry, butt and stitch the ends together with straight stitches. Voila, you are ready to take on any cocktail party with your new rings!
