Recycle Jeans for Fun Wall hanging

We had a huge blank wall at the country kitchen.I have a growing son so recycled his old jeans and stash findings for this project.
I used a sewing machine but have since created one using fabric glue (a cool new find)
I made this in vertical strips of jeans about 8" and sewed onto an old sheet as a backing.I also left rivets in design and applied more beads to catch the light
The moon is free machine embroidery with bead applique on white fleece.This allows it to be moved until final position and hand applied.
Have fun and experiment with different landscapes
