    You could sew them onto a scrappy picknick quilt to hold utensils and napkins.

    Or sew them onto bright kid fabric for a "pocket quilt" to hide/keep small toys in.

    Or cut them square and make a 4-patch or 9-patch.

    A friend of mine made a few of those and used the pockets to cover corners that were not so perfect, sewing around the hole pocket instead of just 3 sides, since it would get caught otherwise.

    I have seen them sewn onto a block with a "hankie" sticking out. The hankie was sewn into the pocket but left free at the top. Very cute.

    I've seen quilts that have the pockets on the denim. Also they could be used on placemats to hold utencils,

    Just a thought. Scroll down a little and you will find a use for lots of denim pockets.

    I have always wanted to make a quilt with pockets. I would just alternate them with flannel in a rag quilt. I thought I would make flannel and jean squares with at least 1/2 of the jean ssquares being the pockets. Then alternate them flannel up, flannel down, finally washing and drying the quilt. The pockets would be fun places to tuck small things like gum, mints, pencils and pens. Just an idea
