Want a quick and simple project to spruce up an old pair of jeans or a tired old denim skirt? Then look no further! This simple crochet pattern is great for beginners and will jazz up even the most tired old jeans in under half an hour!
Phew it’s hot at the moment isn’t it?! I absolutely love this time of year and just because its summer, it doesn’t mean that I have to put away my yarn and hook. I just love creating cute little summer projects sat in my garden with a homemade lemon iced tea and my cat Remi purring around my feet 🙂
This week I have created this jazzy little ombrè pocket. It’s a great stash buster and I absolutely love the way the colours blend to create the ombrè effect. Now my tired old denim skirt looks brand new! Want to jazz up your pockets? Lets get started!
Cool Ombrè Pocket Tools :
- Drops Love You 8 cotton in shades Opal Green, Turquoise, Light Wash and White
- 4.5mm hook
- Darning Needle
- Pins for blocking (optional)
- Needle and contrasting thread or double sided Bondaweb. My sewing skills aren’t great so I used the lazy method!
This pattern uses UK crochet terms.
