The first completed piece.....

This is the first completed reincarnated piece!

It measures about 6 inches square and is about 1 inch thick -- just big enough for a cell phone, an ID and some other small items.

In its first life it was a pair of blue jeans. I used the back pocket and part of the back of the leg as well as the waist band.

Here's a close shot that shows the detail of the hand made felt heart with its bead embellishment.

And now that my charms have arrived, each of these pieces will have a tag like this one sewed onto it somewhere!

This piece will make its debut at this weekend's Cider Fest on Walnut Street in Springfield, MO. This is a little test to see if there is actually any interest in these items.

I think it looks great, and I especially like the charms!

aren't they just the cutest? they seemed especially appropriate on these pieces tho' I may try to work them into the bears (I just don't know where to sew them, the ear thing has been done!)

Belly-button piercing, perhaps?
