I’m so excited to share with you my repurposed shower curtain & jeans into outdoor pillows with a journal and pen pockets! This easy no sew project is perfect for any age and makes a great gift idea!
I found a shower curtain at a thrift store. I wanted to use it as it would be waterproof and protect the pillow I would be putting inside. Your pillow case size depends on the pillow insert you’ll be using. I placed my pillow on top of the shower curtain and cut it to be a few inches larger than the pillow on all sides.
I hot glued 3 of the 4 sides together. You could sew this if you like or iron fuse the fabric together.
I measured adhesive hook and loop fasteners on the last opening.
I peeled off the backing of the adhesive and placed it inside the opening of the pillow case.
Now I can open and close the pillow case to take it off and clean it when it needs it.
My daughter had out grown these jeans but I loved the butterfly pocket so I decided to use it. I cut out both pockets, and these would become the pen & pencil holders.
I cut off the bottom of the 2 legs. Once the legs were cut off, I cut them open, laid them flat, and then cut on either side of the seams. This would be come the journal pocket.
I placed the pockets on the pillow case where I wanted them to go.
I hot glued the pocket on 3 sides to the shower curtain and left the top side open.
I glued the larger journal pocket on 3 sides leaving the top side open.
I put my pillow inside the case and pressed it closed.
I added a journal to the bottom pocket, and a pen and pencil to the top. You could add color pencils and an art pad if you like as well.
Here they are setting outside. I made 2 of them, the plain pocket one is for my son.
Here is my daughter outside enjoying hers, and she loves to journal.
