Jean Pockets


I had some old blue jeans that had seen their better days, so rather than throwing them away I decided to recycle parts of them.  I couldn't resist doing a fabric collage on these pockets.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by my nest!

Take Care - Robin
