Before you throw out those old jeans, cut out the pockets and use them to reorganize your desk, kitchen, or craft room!

What You’ll Need:
*Jeans with back pockets
*Yarn/embroidery thread/thin ribbon
*Quilting needle
*Embellishments such as fabric paint, sequins, ribbons, buttons, beads, etc.
*Push pins or nails

*Cut out the back pockets of your jeans.

*Decorate your pockets with fabric paint, sequins, ribbons, buttons, beads, etc.

*Thread the quilting needle with the embroidery thread, yarn, or thin ribbon. Poke a hole through the side of the top of the pocket and pull the thread, yarn, or ribbon through.

*Tie a knot at end to secure thread, yarn, or ribbon to pocket, then do the same on the opposite side to create a hanging string.

*Use push pins or nails to hang your pockets on the wall and fill.

*Send us a picture of your pocket organizers and we may post it to our site!
