Pillow for Theresa, 40x40cm, jeans, cotton, FFP (foundation paper piecing)

Christmas Tree at Night
cushion, 45x54 cm, blue cotton, dark grey loden, jeans at the back, zipper, all recycled material

I made the cushions as presents for my friends - for me it was experimenting with fabric, style, design.

As you can see I love to work with Jeans - I started collecting Jeans from my friends and family and have now a huge depot of Jeans, waiting to be cut up and sewed into something new.

One of my quilt guild friends (she is a very talented and creative artist) made this out of Jeans and appliqued one of my mug rugs, calling it "Upcycled" - I think it´s fantastic !
