Recycling More Denim

A friend has asked me to make some recycled denim pillows, so I got to thinking - What kind of designs? What kind of backing fabric? It took me a while, but I got three designs going, one log cabin, another with
triangles, and then a random one (pix later). Then I broke out all my denim and sorted into really light and really dark, and started cutting. I used old threads because the color wouldn't show and it was a good way
to use up partial spools. I put in a spanking new denim needle (size 16) and started stitching. I haven't done any sewing in a while, so it was good to get back into it.

Now to cut the backs, put them together and stuff them. Another task for another day!
