I used some denim for the bottom half of the pillow front - you only need a piece about 20 x 10" for the pillow so this would be a great way to use an old pair of jeans! I just did dense straight line quilting on the front of the pillow and then used a navy and white spot for the envelope back.
And these are a few other items I have made for the guys in my family - links to each project are below the mosaic:
Also, please note that Amy has added more bloggers and days to the Hop which now runs to November 15th.
