"Denim makes for great pocket pillows. The pockets are already made, so these involve less sewing, pressing, and cutting than if you made your own pocket. Materials: Two pairs of jeans destined for the scrap pile. Designate one pair as “light” and one as “dark.” (Optional: The back pocket from a third pair of jeans in a slightly different color of denim.) Fiskars 45 mm Easy Change Ergo Control Rotary Cutter, Fiskars 18″ x 24″ Self-Healing Rotary Cutting Mat, and Fiskars 6″ x 24″ Acrylic Ruler. Cotton fabric for pillow back – ½ yard. Cotton fabric for pillow interior backing – ½ yard or fat quarter. This fabric will not be seen once your pillow is assembled, so you can use muslin, orphaned quilt blocks, or a pieced scraps instead. Fairfield Decorator’s Choice Luxury Pillow Form 16” x 16”. Fairfield Poly-Fil Low-Loft Quilt Batting. An iron and an ironing board or other heat-safe surface. Sewing machine with cotton thread. Basic sewing supplies (i.e., fabric scissors, seam ripper, pins, fabric pencil/marker, etc.). Optional: Denim needle for your sewing machine."

I love this idea! I always wish there were pockets on my throw pillows for all of my current reads and my planners. This is definitely the next best thing!
