We seem to have an abundance of old jeans and I was looking for creative ways to use them. I love the way a favorite pair of worn-in jeans feels and I just hate to throw them away.
Last week I made a denim skirt with a ruffle at the bottom and this week I am making denim throw pillows.
Truth be told, this was the direction I was leaning for recycling my stack of old jeans. I have a couch in my living room that is a denim hue still sporting the original matching pillows.
Some eclectic pillow work is definitely needed there. And the jeans I have are in many, many shades of blue. This is one of the tutorials I used for making some of my pillows.
I don’t know about you, but my family is always looking for the TV remotes, so couldn’t wait to make these so we’d have a place to stash our remotes. I doubt they’ll stay there, but I thought we could give it a shot!
She actually uses hot glue to put these pillow pieces together and hand stitches the flowers on it to make sure they stay on. I actually sewed the denim together, rather than gluing them.
Watch how this gal with Ire Heart Crafting makes these adorable pillows in her step by step tutorial.
