pick a pocket
I was just looking at this cute pocket board we have in our cottage, here in PEI.
It hangs over a bed and guests use it to keep the odd cd, ipod, novel, jewellery, a watch, sunscreen…it’s surprisingly handy.
And it got me thinking that everyone has a few old pairs of jeans in their closet, if not a stack! And if they don’t, every thrift shop has denim just waiting to be bought for nothing.
If you’re at a cottage this summer, it might be a fun project to make something out of old bluejeans. Here are some ideas….
If you’re up for a big project, you could try a quilt. The pockets are a fun addition:
Or here’s a small project that you could make up fast for stocking stuffers later in the year:
Here’s a fun idea, add a pocket to existing pillows you have at the cottage.
For a young friend, these purses are cute:
I’d like to make these cutlery/napkin holders - what a fun idea to take 10 or 12 to someone’s cottage for a hostess gift:
Or if that sounds too ambitious, how about two pot holders? The pockets are the perfect size for hands of course:
And here’ a summery look, you’ll be smashing serving lemonade in this:
Forever in Bluejeans Babe!
