DIY Denim Log Cabin Pocket Pillows

"Grab some jeans headed for the scrap pile and make yourself a plush pocket pillow! These lightly quilted pocket pillows using upcycled denim are variations on the traditional log cabin quilt block and are strip pieced to minimize cutting. The envelope style of the pillow case makes it easy to remove the pillow cases for washing. Materials (for one pillow): Two pairs of jeans destined for the scrap pile. (Optional: The back pocket from a third pair of jeans in a slightly different color of denim.) Rotary cutter, cutting mat, and 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."
