Pockets I've collected over the years from pants cut up for other projects and a ton of teeny weeny little scraps of denim etc that I thought were still just this side of garbage.




This one was given to our cousins as a house warming gift






2 others that needed binding.


This one isn't finished.


This one IS finally finished!

What a great idea! It would be nice in a kid's room or craft room for storage!

A lovely collection of pockets CLM  Grin I think you've done a brilliant job of using them all up and making something very useful from them.

What a wonderful use for all of those pockets!  I think it would make for great storage...it would also be fun to hide treats for the kids after they do a chore or get a good mark in school!

The thrift shop was having a bag sale so I bought all the jeans I could jam into a couple sacks and covered a sofa-bed love seat in the stuff. I ended up with a LOT of pockets, then I added to the stash with corduroy for a baby quilt and some other projects. The thrift store is my go-to for fabric, takes a lot of effort to deconstruct garments but fun things happen when you do Smiley.

These are great!  I'm cutting up denim jeans to make seat covers for my jeep and have loads of pockets!  I also got a lot of kids jeans, and have made some small pocketbooks and a quiver for my bow & arrows.  I'll try to post a picture of that soon.  Great job!
