Denim Book Cover

Introduction: Denim Book Cover

About: I like turtles.

i am currently in my 3rd year of highschool (I IS JUNIOR)
and in my ART2 Class. my art teacher wants us to make this art inspiration book and last weeks assignment was to make a cover for the book. everyone else was painting and collaging. and personally i hate painting and im not ever in the mood to sift through magazines, so i decided to break away from the norm and use an old pair of jeans.
tell me what you think.

    Any special processes you used? Is it removable?

    no its not, but I suppose you could make it like a traditional paper sleeve. What I did was... took one piece of the jeans that had the pocket, cut it to a size about an inch larger than the book, centered it, glued it on, then took the excess and glued it on the interior cover. Then since the first and last pages of books are usually blank, I glued those pages to the cover OVER the flaps of denim that went inside. Did the same to the front cover. Then I sewed the two pieces together over the spine. Im sure there are much easier ways of doing this but it works.

    this is really cool. i think if you add more fabric/sequins it'd look even cooler.

    I like it a lot. I think it would be even better if you added more drawings on the fabric.
