It took me forever and a day (Or so) but I finished my couch in thrifted jeans.  I'm so proud of myself!

Arm detail

Figured out the piecing here in the back that unfortunately no one will see.

Thanks for looking.  I hope this is the right place to post this!

pretty great...I would love to do something like this in the band room...I bet it will be very sturdy and almost indestructible!

Wow--looks like you spent a lot of time cutting and piecing, but it turned out really well!

I actually like all the little piecing bits on back and also the side arms...great place for the remotes! Grin

thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness. That is amazing.  Such a great idea too.  The denim is hardwearing enough for upholstery fabric and I love the shades of blue and the way you have kept the pockets on the sides for storage.

This rocks!

I love the stripes that run all along the back of the couch.  Super cool!

This rocks!

It is so great - and what a big work. Love the pockets.

I agree about the stripes - fab! It looks really good, well done. Lets hope young friends don't hide 'surprises' in the pockets!

Wow, so much work, it turned out great!  I agree that the way you worked with the different shades of denim is really lovely.  It's so cute and funky and I can picture all kinds of pillows to go with it, too!

Um yeah that pretty much rocks. I have a ton of old jeans I need to do something with. I was gonna make a cloak but this is on the verge of beating that idea.

If I was still in my out of sanity hippie phase 7 years ago ( I have always been a bit hippie/gothic/punky, being that I was born in the early 70's :p)  I would have so copied this idea! I totally love the pockets on the side arms! Great for books, controllers, and 20 ounce soda bottles:p
