    I used an old pair of jean and cut the pocket off then appliqued the bird on then cut out the background and backing from a leg. I sewed the pocket back to the front and used heat resistant batting then binded.

    Oh, what a great and clever idea!!!! I love that. I've been storing old jeans forever now, and that would be fun to do with the pockets.
