I have been hoarding my hubby's worn out formal trousers for a fairly long time now. I always loved the fabric it was made out of. Very high quality woollen, linen, cotton blend. Here in India the formals are really made of very good quality cotton and that's a reason why most of it is exported. Anyway I took them of 'THE TRUNK' (another post on it sometime) finally and the journey to give them a make over started. And boy o boy was I surprised. I used only 4 trousers to make a quilt of size 63" by 76". So I still have quite a few more trousers in my kitty and I have plans :).
So this is what it looked it when I began:
This is what it looked like all chopped up:
This is what it looked with all pieces stitched up in strips:
The finished piece is done without batting as it seemed heavy and warm enough. Now used as a guest bed cover. From discarded trash to a new treasure, the journey is complete my friend. What say!
