Step 1: Tie rubber bands around a chunk of denim.
Step 2: Set in tub of one part bleach and one part water mixture for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Remove rubber bands and rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Step 4: Cut a triangle shapes out of paper as a pattern piece.
Step 5: Cut out 24 triangles from both shades of denim fabric (total of 48).
Step 6: Lay out all triangles into a rectangular form.
Step 7: Sew row by row all triangles together.
Step 8: Once all triangles are sewn together, sew two sides together to make a square.
Step 9: Add stuffing to the inside.
