The jeans are denim. I took a Chlorine Stick (stain removal stick) and drew my feather motifs on the jeans. I put newspaper inside of the pant leg so not to go through to the backside. I let it work until I liked the look, then rinsed in a tub of water. Then I neutralized the chlorine by using a product that was meant to condition the water for fish tanks readily available even at Walmart.
The second is my watch band. I drew the design two inches wide and my wrist measurement plus 12 inch and the overlap for the velcro long. I paper pieced right on the the quadrilled paper that I drew my pattern onto.
