Denim Locker Pockets

In just a few easy steps, your child can turn an old pair of jeans or shorts into a couple of pen and pencil holders that mount easily in a school locker.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • old pair of jeans or shorts
  • scissors
  • fabric paint
  • iron on patches
  • buttons
  • craft glue
  • magnetic tape

Instructions:

  1. Begin by having your child cut each back pocket from the jeans. (Make sure she gets the material it's attached to as well and not just the pocket.) She should cut closely around the three sewn edges of the pocket.
  2. Now she can start decorating by attaching any iron-on patches according to the package directions, using fabric paint, buttons, etc.
  3. Let the paint dry.
  4. With the pocket face down, cut the magnetic tape into one-inch strips and affix a magnet to each corner of the pocket (add a dab of tacky glue for an even stronger hold, if needed), and it's ready for hanging in a school locker.
