I used an old pair of my husband's jeans to make 4 rectangular scraps.
I cut two equally sized scraps of batting.
I cut my shapes out of some random scraps I have lying around.
I placed the shapes on the denim where I needed them to be. Be sure to position them around the 1/4 inch seam so that they don't get caught during sewing.
Pin and Sew
Placement for sewing: Batting, denim right side up, denim right side down. Make certain that all of your edges are lined up. Missing an edge is so very annoying!
Sew around the edge in a basting stitch, making certain to backstitch at the beginning and end. Leave on end open for turning.
Gently turn it right side out.
Top stitch around, folding under the edge you left open for turning.
Stack the two pages on top of each other and sew straight down the middle, being careful to catch both pages. Use a denim needle since you are essentially stitching through 4 layers of denim and 2 layers of batting. It's rather thick.
