So there is this site… it is called Pinterest and well I am an addict and you might be too… So Follow Me!!
Now one lovely day on Pinterest I strolled across some colored jean shorts that had a lace pocket.
I was so excited, I showed Nico and he even acknowledge that it was a “cool” idea… so of course I had to do it… like the following day since the scrolling was happening in bed before bed time. Helps aid in crafty dreams ;)
So I pulled out my colored jeans, lace fabric, thread to match the lace, pins and scissors.
|1. Gather your supplies|
I cut a straight edge along the top of the lace and pinned it to the top of the pocket so it would stay in place while I cut out the pockets.
|2. Cut the lace|
The cutting took a little bit longer but you really want to make sure they line up.
|3. Make sure the pockets line up|
After you have the lace pockets cut thread your needle and get ready to hand sew the lace to the pocket. I started on the top right side of the pocket and made my way all the way around. I secured my stitch, cut off the extra and voila… one pocket down.
|4. Sew the lace onto the pocket|
So repeat the above sewing steps and you have a fabulous DIY to dress up some jeans.
|5. Wear your fabulous jeans!|
And these jeans had already been pinterestfied… it is a word? They were highlighter yellow and I bought them for $5 at Wet Seal… I bleached them and then dyed them red since the highlighter yellow pants were not getting worn.
