Valentine's Pillow Made of Old Jeans


Valentine's projects are really quite fun when you get going on them! I can find myself going a bit overboard! I like pops of red for Valentines' but it's also really fun to stay a bit more neutral or even go a bit unconventional and create something that is Valentine themed but also would work year round. Hearts have become a bit of a trend again - much cuter now than back in the 70's and 80's though -

Leather jacket from a thrift store and an old pair of jeans from a friend - the pillow was created for my friend!
I love the way it looks when you use the pockets of jeans in repurposed textile projects! And the leather adds a great texture too!

    How did you stitch on the leather hearts? Did you use an awl / leather punch and then hand sew?

      I simply sewed them on with my machine. This leather was really lightweight but a home sewing machine will sew through pretty heavy leather
