Let's Get Started

Step 1

Gather all materials.

Step 2

First, grab a pair of cotton-rich denim jeans and cut off both legs. Snip down the seam and open them up.

Step 3

Then trim them so that you have two rectangles that are the same size

Step 4

Place one on top of the other with the outside in and pin them in place.

Step 5

Sew along the edges leaving a small section open on one side.

Step 6

Flip the case inside out.

Step 7

Stuff your pillow through the opening.

Step 8

Pin the opening together. Either hand stitch (whipstitch will work) or sew the edge with your machine

Step 9

Add your belts creating new holes with your awl if they are too long.

Boom. New pillow for you!
