Recycled Denim

My nephews' christmas gift is done (pictured above)
It's the first of many handmade christmas gifts I need to achieve before December 25. He apparently wants a corner in his bedroom full of big pillows where he can just flop down and read (so his Mum tells me). So this is what I have come up with. A huge cushion - 80cm x 80cm - made from recycled denim jeans and skirts, and a bit of chenille and cotton fabrics thrown in to break it up a bit. I am pretty happy with the result - hope he is too !

Some other ideas for designs using recycled denims

necklace using denim and lace So don't throw out those old jeans - recycle
