I spent many years cutting away inches and inches of denim while hemming my daughters jeans. I saved the bottoms hoping to find some way to use them. I bought a lightweight denim comforter and was inspired to make these pillows. They are the perfect size to lay on while reading, for back support or lap tray, or for just about anything. They are rugged and durable yet soft and cozy. I put zippers in all my pillows so I can simply slip them off and toss them in the wash. These are the first ones I made and my family loves them. I have more to make in various colors, styles, and textures.
