My husband put 10 pairs of raggedy jeans on the trash pile!! I told him I could use those for quilts & other projects. He said - prove it! Most of what wasn't ripped or stained was cut up for quilting projects, but the pockets?? Time to re-purpose, recycle, upcycle those Pockets into something wonderfully usable! We'll create a "Pocket Pouch" to hold anything you like - art/sewing supplies, seed packets, electronics, coupons, love notes ... Very easy to make - no guessing involved :) Adjustments given for different-sized pockets - "good ideas" section will have you making Pocket Pouches for everyone! Make up a bunch & have a family decorating event - use up craft supplies - repurpose old pockets - HAVE FUN! And, of course, sew & SELL (mention Doodle Time Designs, please). Thank you. Faith.
