    NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project.

    What you’ll need:
    A pair of jeans
    Pencil
    Ruler
    T-shirt with a pattern you like
    Scissors
    Hot glue gun or needle and thread

    Directions:
    Step 1: Measure the size of the pockets on the back of your jeans.

    Step 2: Using a pencil and a ruler, draw the shape of the pockets onto the T-shirt.

    Step 3: Cut out the fabric leaving about half an inch extra around what you’ve drawn.

    Step 4: Hot glue or sew the fabric over the pockets, making sure not to glue/sew the pockets shut.

    Step 5: Hot glue or sew on the extra pieces as additional detail (optional).
