Directions For The Upcycled Denim Cube

Step One: Gather about 20 pairs of baby jeans.

Step Two: Deconstruct the jeans into 6″ strips.

Step Three: Build 6 blocks starting with a 6″ center and building out to 5 rows across and 5 rows down:

Step Four: For the last row of the 6th side, incorporate the snaps of the inner leg seam from one of the jeans.

Step Five: Construct the cube, right sides together.

Step Six: Open snaps and turn right sides out. Stuff with stuffed animals and pillow inserts.

Step Seven: Relax!
