- An old pair of jeans
- Zipper (or alternative closure)
Rip off both back pockets from the jeans. With right sides facing, sew one side of the zipper to one pocket, then sew the second. At this point you can decide the shape of your pouch. I like the idea of sewing up the edges as is and leaving the pouch with that "jeans back pocket" look. However, considering the function I needed the pouch for, I decided a rectangular shape would be best. Open the zipper half way, and stitch the other 3 sides together. Trim any excess fabric and zipper and turn right side out. Good for the environment and good for staying organized!
