I have a couple of big boxes of old jeans or jeans that don’t fit me any more. I knew there was something cool I could do with them and I discovered a lot of great DIY projects…imagine that!
I made a couple of really cool throw pillows out of muslin and sewed large denim polka dots on them, out of the different colors of jeans. They are so great looking!
Then I realized there was a project that I really needed to address…I needed to do something about my patio cushions…they had seen their better days. They showed a lot of wear and tear, but the cushions themselves were still good. About that time I was scrolling through Pinterest. I ran across this great tutorial.
I fell in love with the idea of using a brightly colored pom pom trim with some of the darker denim I had left over from another sewing project, and I liked that it was a darker denim because I loved the contrast of the bright pom pom’s next to the darker color. I made a couple of cushion covers out of the darker fabric and then I pieced together some of the fabric from the old jeans and made a couple of those for a great combo. I love the way they look together!
After finishing these covers and putting them on the cushions, I am so stoked with the way they look! They add a great pop of color to my patio and the different colored jeans with the colorful pom pom’s mixed together look terrific!
