my friend is really rough on his work pants, and these puppies were split right up the leg. I was so relieved when he finally gave them up (seriously, packaging tape running up the leg to keep it together?!), but i knew how sad he was to see them go...SO i cut them up and turned them into a pillowcase for a "gaming pillow". He's always got to have a pillow in his lap to rest his arms on when he's playing video games (i dont know if this is a common thing). Im happy with how it turned out, even though im terrible at sewing...the end of the pillow sticks out a bit, but i like the effect. And all of the tiny rips let the pattern on the pillow peek through; pulls it all together. Anyway, i havent given it to him yet, i hope he likes it Smiley







sorry...i went kind of camera-happy...

That's awesome, and a great idea!  I love that the pillow sticks out.  Smiley
