Pillowcases from old jeans

Jeans are so durable and beautiful material that throwing them away simply does not raise a hand. I save them, collect from friends or acquaintances. I sew of them different things. So I decided to make pillow cases on the sofa bed. I think they will be able to revive the annoying interior. Jeans pads can be sewn in different ways and in different sizes. I, to spend less precious jeans, decided to make patchwork, decorating them with flowers. These will be girly pillows. I will sew two pieces at once.

For the manufacture of pillowcases prepared this:
  • denim trimming;
  • a pair of jeans (I always wash and unpick them beforehand);
  • two zippers (I have blue secret ones);
  • fabric for a lining, 0.5 in size 1.0 m (I have unpainted calico);
  • blue sewing threads.
Tools:
  • simple and zigzag scissors;
  • splicing needles;
  • iron;
  • sewing machine.

    Sewing jeans pillowcases

    When I have jeans trimmed, I am something of them too ezayu. Here there are already made small squares 10 by 10 cm.I assembled them in a large square 4 by 4 pieces.

    First, it was sewn into strips of 4 squares, smoothing the seams. Then she sewed the strips between each of 4 pieces. Again the seams smoothed. In the finished form, the squares are 36 by 36 cm. I make all seams 1 cm wide. I cut out 4 stripes 7 cm wide and 36 cm long from the front of the jeans legs. Then 4 more of the same width, but 46 cm long. Sewed short stripes to two opposite sides of the squares. Smoothed. Sewed on long strips to the remaining sides. Smoothed. Seams do not work, because I will cover them with a lining cloth. You can start decorating. For this, I zigzag cut out an almost oval leaf with scissors. Cut six strips in length approximately 35-40 sm, width 4-5 sm (it is a little a cone). She folded them in half and twirled the roses. There are many ways to make a flower out of cloth; I chose one of the simple ones, when the strip is twisted, folding into a rose.On the reverse side, the flower is fixed with threads manually, so that it does not crumble.

    Approximately I arrange the composition of three roses and leaves on a prepared square. If the jeans are strongly stretched, I strengthen it from the back side with glue interlining. Only that part where volume application will be sewn.

    First, I put on a typewriter on the edge of a flower roses, then leaves. Leaves I sew not on a contour, and veins. When both applications are ready, I postpone the workpieces. I am starting to manufacture the back side of pillowcases. The upper parts turned out to be 46 by 46 cm in size. From the jeans trousers of the second jeans I cut out two rectangles 46 by 40 cm in size (just the width of the jeans did not allow us to do more).From the remaining back halves of the first jeans I cut out two strips measuring 46 by 10 cm.

    I sew a zipper between a rectangle and a strip. Although secret lightning, I sewed it so that it was covered with a cloth. After the zipper is sewn in, a square measuring 46 by 46 cm should be made, just like the front part of the pillowcase. Just cut the surplus cloth, leveling the size. .jpg "style =" max-width: 100%; " alt="Pillowcases from old jeans">

I cut out two equally sized squares from coarse calico. I fold the denim blanks “facing” to each other, cover the ugly part with the seams of the sheeting. All the needles off the perimeter. Sewing on the sewing machine twice. I process the edge on the overlock. If not, you can use any machine seam (zigzag, for example) to cover over. It remains to turn out the pillowcase and put it on the pillow.Or just fill it with holofiber, sintepon, foam rubber.
