We were throwing out this old couch from the teen room at my church because it's so torn up that it's blowing foam.  I salvaged a TON of denim and six zippers from it.  Also, a guy from my church gave me a bunch of zipper sliders and hog rings that he had from when he used to do upholstery.  He said that when he can find it he'll bring me the big roll of zipper he has (or whatever you call the actual part with the teeth... yeah...).

I'm so pumped about getting all of this stuff!  Now I just have to think of something to do with all of it...

I've made two of these quilts out of old jeans.  I used a cereal bowl as my template.   Grin


Here's one I made for my mom.  Grin

I just read thru the link you've included - I love this!  I like how the quilt is "finished" on both sides, and you don't need to do the traditional backing and back piece.

What size are your finished squares?  I was working on getting pieces for a denim quilt and have 6 1/2" squares cut out... but I would love to do this instead. I just need to find a cover or cereal bowl that fits on the squares I've cut - I can't wait to do this!

Beautiful job Smiley

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

When I left high school, my really cool english teacher and tutor made me a pair of zipper tab earrings. They look really cute and kitsch. All you would have to do is super-glue the zip tab onto a stud earring back from any bead/jewelry/craft shop.
