I had these incredible jeans that fit me just right in all the right places. Sadly in the matter of a few weeks holes developed in the belly ( near the zipper) , the belt loops tore off leaving holes and the crouch ripped when i bend over. :-( But there was hope in the form a bollster pillow!

First I cut off the legg just below the pocket ( The pillow will not be perfectlt striaght since my jeans were boot cut)

then on the end I sewed thru some slighty gathers , then stitched striaght across to close the leg,

repeated on other end, then cut a small hole in the seam . Turned inside out and stuffed

Heres the end pre-stuffing

stitched the hole close and Voila!

Here They are ( along with a few other of my pillows ...such a kick i've been on lately)
They're Comfy and can double as a neck or knee pillow too!

She's too pure for the likes of this world, this world is a whore.

A smile to hide the fear away, Oh smear this man across the walls, like strawberries and cream, it's the only way to be.
