Denim Pocket Pincushion

If you're looking for easy denim crafts that don't require any new fabric, this project is for you. Use old, tattered or ill-fitting jeans to create your own Denim Pocket Pincushion from Cyndee Kromminga. Use the reverse applique technique to add a star to your creation.



  • Adult size blue jeans
  • Scissors
  • 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter
  • Marking pen
  • Fabric scrap
  • Sewing machine
  • Small pointed scissors
  • Compass
  • Straight pins
  • Stuffing


  1. Cut out the back pockets from an old pair of adult jeans. When doing so, cut around the pockets, through the fabric of the jeans. Each pocket will resemble a little bag.

  2. Lay one pocket on your work surface with the back facing up. Center a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter on the pocket and trace around it using a marking pen.

  3. Cut a fabric scrap slightly smaller than the stitched edges of your pocket. With the pocket facing right side up, insert the fabric in the pocket with its right side facing up.

  4. Place the pocket under the presser foot on your sewing machine with the marked star facing up. Sew the shape of the star on the marked lines.
  5. Using small pointed scissors, carefully cut out the front layer of the star shape 1/4 inch inside the stitched lines. Remove the cut denim to reveal the fabric that is sandwiched between the layers.

  6. Center and trace a circle around the cut star using a compass. Make the circle as large as your pocket will allow. Cut out the circle through all the layers. Place the remaining pocket on your work surface with the wrong side facing up. Center and pin the cut circle on the pocket with the star facing up. Sew the circle to the pocket using a 1/4-inch seam allowance and leaving a 2-inch opening for stuffing.

  7. Cut the backing around the circle. Fill the pincushion with stuffing. Close the opening using the same 1/4-inch seam allowance as was used on the rest of the cushion's edge.
