I’m trying to keep myself busy these days, it’s part of the way I’ve been coping with Max’s passing. I’ve been clearing out closets and I came across these old jeans that are very much out of style and ahem, ahemmmm, a little too small. Do you have jeans in your closet like that?
A little light bulb went off, something I’ve been wanting to do in a tablescape for a while.
I cut the back pockets off keeping the fabric intact on the back so it still remained a pocket.
Then I trimmed off the access fabric being careful to not cut through the top-stitching.
Here’s how the backs looked once the excess fabric was removed. The back pockets on jeans are great for cutting since the top-stitching keeps them intact.
Three pairs of old jeans yielded 6 back pockets. Can you guess what I have planned for these?
How about something fun for a 4th of July table setting.
Those old jean pockets make pretty handy little flatware holders.
I tied a red, white and blue ribbon around the pocket for a little extra pizazz. These took all of about 15 minutes to make. So easy and no sewing required!
