take a old pair of jeans. cut them like you would if you were making a jean purse (cut the legs off then sow shut). instead make it into a pillow and use the pockets to hold remotes and tv guide. use fabric paint and put kids hand prints on each pocket.
Cute idea! I think instead of making it into a pillow I would like to add something to it to make it into a couch hugger. Then you can use the little pockets for remotes and the bigger pocket for small books or the tv guide (for those who still get that).
