With Susan's post probably in the back of my mind, I thought that the pockets could be recycled into a little pouch. By good fortune the fly zip was just the right size too.
After a false start ...
(sewing the zip on upside down...)
My youngest and I sewed this (I steered, she drove):
It has a central zipped compartment and - obviously - two outside pockets! It came with its own embellishment, otherwise we would have decorated it ourselves. Next time I'm recycling a pair of jeans I'll make another with a shoulder strap, and try covered zip ends.

I think you have to sew a zip on upside down every now and again to keep you on your toes :)ReplyDelete

What a fun project. My husband suggested to me the other day to use old jeans on a project... I should try it your pillow is so cute. And I really like the pouch.ReplyDelete
