    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.

    VERY clever! I just may do the same thing! It's a great use of jeans that can't be worn any more and because denim is so thick, it's the perfect fabric for a potholder!

    Very clever and cute, but please let us know how well it works out when you handle something hot.

    It does work great. I use that insulated batting in it.
    I use it as a trivet on my table for hot stuff too.
    Thanks
