    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:
    Denim
    Ruler or tape measure
    Scissors
    Backpack
    Push pins
    Needle
    Thread

    Directions:
    Step 1: Find a wash of denim that you like.

    Step 2: Measure the pocket you will be replacing.

    Step 3: Map out the measurements from step two on the denim you chose.

    Step 4: Cut the outline with scissors.

    Step 5: Align the fabric on top of the pocket and use push pins along the perimeter to hold it in place.

    Step 6: Use a needle and thread to adhere the fabric over the pocket. You’re finished!
