Denim Pocket Pillow

Learn how to use your denim scraps in a new way

In the Designer's Words: "Anyone who knows me (even a little) knows that I LOVE all things denim! I love to surround myself with denim, it just makes me happy. I decided to make a denim pillow with one of the many Levis® pockets that I have in my stash using the Soft Touch pillow insert from Fairfield and I added a denim and rose gold flower pin and organza bow pin, that can both be removed for washing purposes, using my new die from Spellbinders®, some old jeans and Fairfield’s Oly*Fun Rose Gold metallic fabric. The step by step photos for making the flower will be on my blog."
I don't know about you, but I always have a pair of jeans that I never use. This Denim Pillow is a perfect way to use those old jeans you have lying around. It is a unique decoration to add to any room or gift it to a friend. The flower pins add that extra touch and the best part is that they are removable so you can throw it in the wash. Practical and cute, what more could you want in your next DIY craft!
