Yesterday's hard work revealed

Front
Back

Yesterday HP and I spent much of the afternoon (and some of the evening) turning a pair of her jeans which were very worn out in places (read lots of holes and rips) into two cushion covers. One of these was slightly more conventional than the other - it was made from the majority of the material from both legs. The second was made by sewing together all the useable left over bits into what vaguely resembled a long rectangle and then sewing it up into the finished cover (both are made with an overlapped part rather than using zips). These are the finished articles.

The bit I don't quite get is, where is the opening on the cushion on the left?

Towards the top.It's sort of v shaped - the buttons are the left side. And then the right bit of the v is above the small patch. That probably doesn't make sense, so click on it and make it big and you might see it.

Those are so very cool! What a great idea for recycling old jeans!
