RECYCLED DENIM POUCH A Raspberry Sunshine Tutorial Materials List: 1 pair of denim pants (khakis work

A Raspberry Sunshine Tutorial

Materials List:

1 pair of denim pants (khakis work great too) for a total of two outside pockets

1/4 yd of fabric for pocket lining (this is optional)

scrap denim for strap ( I used a strip of a side seam, but use whatever works for you!)

Zipper (size will vary on width of pocket) I used a 7″ zipper * I do not recommend using interfacing for this small project, but if you want to, a Pellon SF101 would be good. *

** All seams are 1/4” unless otherwise stated. **
