Our old table had reached its capacity at 6 with the leaf, and we are a family of 5.
That didn't leave much room for guests. And while we are relatively boring, we do like company. Our lovely little house couldn't handle a table at its every day length of more than 6 feet, so we were limited in our low budget choices. My father had a coworker who was moving, and he was very generous to offer to purchase her dining room table, but it measured a whopping 6 feet 8 inches. Those 8 inches would have blocked the door to our hallway.

I found this awesome art on pinterest (the better image on right). Now the artist, Stephanie d'Entremont, has several incredible Star Wars pieces, but the R2-D2 one really intrigued me.
I could wax on and on about all the things that I love about this piece of art, or I can get to the good stuff - pictures.

“Um, that’s the leg from a pair of jeans.” and “That is so cool!” Now, I am paraphrasing, but both quotes sum it up.
When I saw my inspiration, which also used a jeans leg, I thought, “Cool idea!”, which is why I made mine. So here is hoping you like it just as much as I do.
- A pair of old, thrifted or - hole in the crotch so they are ruined for just about anything but scrap jeans
- Some cool coordinating fleece to line the scarf and keep it warm
- Kamsnaps or other closure element
- Sewing machine, scissors, rotary cutter, straight edge, thread, etc.
