I cut up many many pairs of old jeans for a denim quilt, and set aside the back pockets because they seemed useful. Now I have about twenty back pockets (plus an inch or more of the fabric around the pocket...so like more than just the pocket, but the whole cheek surface if that makes any sense), and I can't for the life of me figure out what to do with them!

My first thought was some sort of hanging organizer, like this shoe organizer (http://www.amazon.com/Honey-Can-Do-SFT-01256-Organizer-Storage-Natural/dp/B001F51AIA), but of course jean pockets aren't large enough for shoes. It would be good for toys (matchbox cars!) but I don't have kids. It could work for paint brushes and markers and stuff but that just doesn't excite me.

So I was wondering if anyone had other ideas for cool stuff to do with jean pockets?

I did some more searching and have answered my own question. At least some of them will go to make potholders like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401677.0

I also found an organizer that could be interesting made from pockets here http://www.allfreecrafts.com/sewing/denim-organizer.shtml

And here's an idea for a book cover...use the pocket to have a place for pens or something! http://www.margotpotter.com/2009/09/i-love-to-create-recycled-denim-book.html

Excellent ideas!  The potholder would be cute in a country kitchen.  I use my pockets for the inside pockets of tote bags, or add a flap and velcro for a change purse.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
