I have a denim graveyard. Ripped knees, worn through thighs (who me?) ....I can't bear to say goodbye. I could turn them into something really cool like my friend Kathryn did, but that would take a lot of work and more than one naughty word before I was done. If I ever finished it at all. So they just sit.
Until it's party time.
In the top drawer of my craft dresser I've accumulated this pile o' pockets. Random? Perhaps. But if you heat up a glue gun and run a bead just on the edges, they go from old pockets into HOT pockets. Perfect for sticking in colored pencils, money, or a baby bottle on the outside of a shower gift. Or go for the tried and true favorite: sugar.
I didn't want to hurt any feelings, so the legs got put to work too.Wanna make one? Super simple. It took longer to upload these photos than it does to make one. Promise. I didn't have a long enough piece to go all the way around the box, so I sewed two strips together because I was feeling particularly domestic. You could skip that and use hot glue or even a safety pin. Whatever floats your kayak. If it looks like a gift headband, you did it right.
