Row by Row Project Idea

Here’s a project idea for the Row by Row Junior pattern “Arrows.” It can be used with any row pattern that is 9″ tall finished and 36″ long finished. It fits a king size bed pillow perfectly. Have fun recycling your worn out blue jeans by using them as the top and bottom strips.  Here is the link for the pattern and other Row by Row Studio ideas.  Junior Jeans Pocket PillowRxR-Junior-Jeans-Pocket-Pillow-for-blog-ad-320x200
