DIY Jean Cushions

You Will Need.

A Pair of Old Jeans
A Zipper
Sewing Machine
Needle and Thread
Cushion Stuffing
Grey Lead

1. Start with a pair of your old Jeans. Decide how big you want your cushion and cut your pieces accordingly adding 2cm each direction.
(Do not destroy any pockets you will need them later)

2. With Grey led run a line 1cm in from each edge around the fabric, this will be your sewing line.

3. Lay the Fabric so that the fronts of them are in the centre and pin them together along the edges.

4. Undo the Zipper and lay each side separately in place on the edge of the cushion, make sure that the only part overhanging the grey led line is the zipper itself, all fabric attached to the zipper should be on the inside of the square you have drawn, pin it in place.
5. Using the sewing Machine sew around the fabric following the line that was drawn in step 2.

6. Pull Your Pillow around the right way by pulling the inside of it out. Now you have to sew on your pockets, cut the back pockets off your jeans and remove the backing so that they are just the part that you see. Now sew them on your cushions positioned as you wish, you will need to do this by hand using a blanket stitch

    1. Hey there, I don't really have a lot of experience writing. On a limb I went out a wrote my own book, simply because I felt like I could but I have no formal writing degrees or certificates, anything like that. What helped me a lot I think is just speaking as I would normally speak out loud. Don't try to sound too formal just be yourself. And to get the writing flowing I would suggest a really short warm up. For example, before typing up the real thing, just muck around with a short paragraph about what's going on around you right now.
      "So yeah, it's pretty awesome, got out of doing the dishes because I passed off to the annoying little sister."
      Something easy like that, it'll just get the words flowing and then you'll find when you come to typing to final piece, words will just start to flow.
