I saw some of these at a friends house a while ago and loved the idea! So when I found jeans for 50c a pair in the local charity shop I knew I had to make some of my own!  I just cut off the pockets from the jeans - and added pretty fabric with a layer of fleece in the middle which I quilted together.  Then stitched it all together and added some quick binding! Nice simple project!



I posted a tutorial here:  http://jembellish.blogspot.com/2012/01/pot-holders-from-jeans-pockets-tutorial.html
