After making these previous two: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451111.0 (post contains turorial!), I now finished two more roll pillows, or bolster pillows, using recycled jeans (both 'legs' of one pair of jeans) for the outside covers.







In real life they are a darker, less bright, shade of denim blue.

I use them as a 'table' on my lap for a book, e-reader or puzzle book.
And also as a comfortable arm rest for when I lay/hang on the couch (I have fibro).

Even though I took these pictures in our living room, like with the other ones (because of more daylight) these will be used in my 'little home within our home', where I have a dark brown couch and light blue walls.

I hope you like them.

Fantastic! I love reusing denim from old jeans, it's a great save and your bolsters look terrific. Very crisp and clean, nicely done Smiley.
