Make denim pillows using old jeans! This gorgeous free sewing tutorial will teach you how to make a denim pillowcase by upcycling jeans that no longer fit or have holes in the knees. Use jeans in varying washes for a lovely contrasting effect. You can offset the colors by sewing in orange ribbon and really highlight the chevron shape. If you're looking for old jeans ideas, this is a fantastic project for making denim pillow covers. Denim is so sturdy, too, so this new pillowcase will last you for years to come!

This is a great idea to recycle old jeans into a colorful pillow. The instructions call for using three pairs of old jeans which seems like a lot. However, I found I could use a plain muslin square to stitch all the denim strips and ribbon onto and use muslin for the back of the pillow and only used one pair of jeans. Fun project.
