Trying something new

My husband and I love to camp and I have been spoiled since being married to him, as far as not having to sleep on the ground.  His grandmother, many years ago, had bought padding and covered them with material making sleeping cushions.  These cushions can be used while camping or when you have many guests and not enough extra beds or also in our situation - no spare beds.
This padding is 72" long and about 25" wide.  We bought two of them so we could put them side by side in the tent and sleep next to each other.  The one thing that we have not liked so much about the one's we had been using is that we would wake up in the middle of the night with several inches between the pads and one of us was usually in that gap.  So I decided (after asking my husbands thoughts) to buy a sleeping bag zipper and to sew one side of the zipper to each pad so we can zip them together - making it much harder for them to separate.  He liked the idea and even helped me pick out the fabric and the zipper.
Yesterday I cut the material for the top of one of them and I now need to get the bottom cut and start sewing.  We are very excited to see how this works.  Check back later to see the end results!
